Va. court to hear death row appeal
Lawyers for a death row inmate are asking the Virginia Supreme Court to overturn his sentence because a juror's co-workers urged her to give him death.
Twenty-seven-year-old Joshua Andrews was convicted in a 2002 shooting rampage that left two dead and at least three others injured in Virginia and New York.
Prosecutors said Andrews forced three men to undress and get into a bathtub in a Dumfries-area apartment on Jan. 2, 2002, before shooting them. Two of the men died, and another survived. After that shooting, Andrews and another man fled to New York, where they robbed and shot a convenience store clerk in Queens and shot another man in the Bronx.
Andrews was acquitted in three other deaths.
