Another Death Row Appeal Denied for Bremerton Murderer

Another lost appeal is in the books in the case of Jonathan Lee Gentry.

The Seattle Times’ Mike Carter is reporting that attorneys for the 52-year-old — convicted of killing 12-year-old Cassie Holden with a rock at Gold Mountain Golf Course in 1988 — will appeal again.

He’s been on death row since 1991 — the longest-serving member of the nefarious group.

A Western Washington federal judge found no reversible errors in the case. But Gentry’s lawyers vowed to appeal it to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
