JAMES COOK/UNION LEADER 2/14/08 ¬ ¬ Michael Soto, seen here with defense attorney Ghazi D. Al-Marayati, is arraigned yesterday at Manchester District Court on Accomplice to First Degree Murder Charges.
Attorneys for convicted first-degree murderers Robert Tulloch, 30, Robert Dingman, 34, Michael Soto, 23, and Eduardo Lopez Jr., 39, maintain their clients are entitled to retroactive relief, even though their clients' convictions were final.
The state disputes that claim.
Whether Miller applies retroactively to the four cases will be the sole issue argued in Merrimack County Superior Court in Concord Tuesday morning. Tulloch waived his appearance at the hearing, the court's clerk said last week. It was not known last week if the other three defendants intend to appear.
Soto, 23, was convicted of accomplice to first-degree murder in the 2007 shooting death of Aaron Kar in Manchester.
To date, just one juvenile killer was deemed eligible for resentencing in New Hampshire under Miller v. Alabama. Steven Spader, 21, had his resentencing hearing held April 22. He waived his right to appear at the hearing and was sentenced in absentia. He received the same sentence — life without parole plus 76 years — that he did when originally convicted at trial.
