People v. EubanksAnnotate this Case
Defendant was convicted of four counts of first degree murder when she shot and killed her four young children. A jury found true as to each murder the special circumstance allegation that defendant had committed multiple murders and defendant personally used a firearm in the commission of the murders. After a penalty trial, the jury returned a verdict of death and this appeal was automatic. The court reviewed pretrial, guilt phase, and penalty phase claims. Having found only minor harmless errors during defendant's trial, the court rejected defendant's claim of cumulative effect. The court also rejected defendant's challenges as to her sentence. Accordingly, the judgment was affirmed.
