Head Comment: Correction to dissenting opinion.

Court: TN Supreme Court

Judge(s): WADE

Initially, no words adequately describe the horrible nature of this murder. Nevertheless, I concur with the majority that a new sentencing hearing is warranted based upon the ineffective assistance of counsel at the penalty stage of the trial. Moreover, I believe that the deficiency in counsel’s performance was such that an entirely new trial should be granted. In that regard, I dissent.
