NELSON, BILLY RAY, PETITIONER
ON PETITION FOR WRIT OF CERTIORARI TO THE COURT OF CRIMINAL APPEALS OF TEXAS.
Rehnquist, Blackmun, Stevens, O'Connor, Scalia, Kennedy, Souter, Thomas, Ginsburg.
The petition for writ of certiorari is denied.
Justice Blackmun dissenting:
Adhering to my view that the death penalty cannot be imposed fairly within the constraints of our Constitution, see my dissent in Callins v. Collins, 510 U.S. , (1994), I would grant certiorari and vacate the death sentence in this case.
