Mr. Murray was convicted in 1994 of first-degree murder, burglary with assault, and sexual battery of Alice Vest in 1990. This Court reversed the convictions and sentence findings and ordered a new trial. In 2003 he was convicted of first-degree murder. The jury voted 11-1 to recommend a death sentence, and the trial court condemned him to death. This Court upheld his sentence on direct appeal. Mr. Murray filed post-conviction challenges in the trial court including a claim that he was entitled to be resentenced pursuant to this Court’s decision in Hurst v. State. The trial court granted resentencing. This appeal followed.
