certiorari to the Superior Court of Georgia, Butts County.


Justice BRENNAN and Justice MARSHALL dissenting:

Adhering to our views that the death penalty is in all circumstances cruel and unusual punishment prohibited by the Eighth and Fourteenth Amendments, Gregg v. Georgia, 428 U.S. 153, 227, 231, 2971, 2973 (1976), we would grant certiorari and vacate the death sentence in this case.[ Baker v. Zant 458 U.S. 1115 (1982) ]
