NC Racial Justice Act hearing delayed to January

Friday, November 11th, 2011

NASHVILLE, NC (AP) — A hearing for a Fayetteville man trying to get off death row on the grounds of racial bias has been postponed until January.

The hearing for Marcus Robinson had been scheduled to begin Tuesday. At a hearing Thursday in Nashville, Nash County Superior Court Judge Quentin Sumner granted prosecutors’ request to delay the next evidentiary hearing to Jan. 30.

Robinson is trying to use the North Carolina Racial Justice Act to prove that racism led to his death sentence in 1994. If he wins his claim, his sentence will be converted to life in prison. Robinson’s attorneys say prosecutors discriminated against qualified black jurors at his 1994 trial for killing a white teenager.

Robinson kidnapped, robbed and murdered 17-year-old Erik Tornblom in 1991.
