If you’re going to kill and dismember a drug dealer, then put him in acid -- don’t expect a judge to agree when you ask that charges be dismissed. Oh, and don’t talk about the crime while you’re in jail.
The state’s top court said 'no way' when a convict appealed an 80-year conviction, claiming the trial judge violated his rights by improperly denying his motion to dismiss the charges and by allowing into evidence a recorded jailhouse conversation that implicated him in the crimes.
Disla's body was dismembered with a chainsaw and dissolved in acid in July 2000 as part of a plot to kidnap Disla and steal his drugs.
The three other men were also sentenced to lengthy prison terms in the case.
