Brent Brewer Case

A convicted Amarillo killer is making another run at having his sentence changed after jurors sentenced him to death for stabbing another man and killing him more than 20 years ago.

Brent Ray Brewer was convicted of killing 66-year-old Robert Laminack in 1990. Although originally sentenced to death, that ruling was overturned in 2007, reducing his sentence to life in prison. But Brewer was back in court in 2009 for a retrial and new sentencing. For the second time, Randall County District Attorney James Farren sought the death penalty and for the second time, a jury agreed.

But even now, in 2013, the case still has not rested with Brewer back in court this week searching once again to have his sentence reduced.

“The appellant is arguing that he did not receive effective assistance of council.”

Again, after spending two days in court, documentation will be sent to the Criminal Court of Appeals to determine if a third retrial is necessary, An option Farren said is not only extremely costly, but also redundant and unnecessary.

“Its the whole process of 20 years of appeals and writs and expert witnesses and additional attorneys, just the cost of paper alone is probably considerable,” Farren explained. “We believe if we pick 12 more jurors, they’ll reach the same decision. Everybody needs a resolution to these things and we ought to be able to get there in less than two decades.”

  1. Finish it. It’s been too long for victim’s family. Why go through the same process again. Same evidence, witnesses. He hasn’t proven his lawyers were ineffective or any evidence was withheld or any of the other usual contentions by condemned inmates. The crime ne committed deserves the death penalty and meets the statutory requirements.
    So, finish it.
