In a span of less than a week, the Carr brothers engaged in a campaign of criminality and savagery that words cannot describe. It's been described as some of the most brutal crimes in Kansas' history. In December of 2000
, Reginald and Jonathan Carr engaged in a depraved campaign of robbery, rape, and murder. The end of their rampage involved a home invasion, where they repeatedly raped the two women inside a house. The Carrs also forced the men to engage in sexual activity with the women. The brothers then drove their victims to a snowy field where they shot them in the head. Only one woman, named "H.G," survived the ordeal. The brothers were caught, tried, and sentenced to death.
Recently, by a vote of 6-1, the Kansas Supreme Court maintained their convictions, but overturned their death sentences, citing procedural problems. Was this the right decision? Or did the judges act inappropriately?
