Globe: Convicted killer could receive third trial

Death row inmate Gary Black may receive a third trial following a Missouri Supreme Court hearing Thursday.
Jasper County Circuit Court Judge Jon Dermott's decision to reject repeated attempts by Black to fire his lawyers and defend himself were cited in the argument before the Supreme Court.
Black has been convicted twice of the racially-motivated 1998 murder of Missouri Southern student-athlete Jason Johnson. More information about that case can be found in the Sept. 22, 2005, Turner Report.
