Oklahoma man seeks new trial in white supremacist plot

The Associated Press - September 11, 2018 5:21 pm

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – An Oklahoma man sentenced to death in 1999 for killing an Arkansas family in a plot to set up a whites-only nation in the Pacific Northwest wants a new trial.

Danny Lee’s attorneys say in documents filed Monday in Little Rock federal court that prosecutors illegally failed to tell defense attorneys that a witness who testified that Lee admitted to the murders also told investigators he believed Lee was lying.

Lee’s attorneys say DNA tests in 2007 and the newly revealed witness testimony should result in a new trial.

Lee of Yukon and Chevie Kehoe of Colville, Washington, were convicted of killing gun dealer William Mueller, his wife Nancy Mueller and her 8-year-old daughter, Sarah Powell, and stealing guns and cash.

Kehoe was sentenced to life without parole.
