PHOENIX – A unanimous decision by the Arizona Supreme Court has upheld a Tucson-area man’s death sentences in the shooting deaths of his sister and her fiance.

The ruling issued Tuesday by the state high court rejects arguments made in an appeal on behalf of Shad Daniel Armstrong.

He was convicted in Pima County Superior Court of the 1996 killings of Tucson residents Farrah Armstrong and Frank Williams.

Authorities say Armstrong decided with another man to kill the couple because Armstrong’s sister wanted to return to Oklahoma to confess to a burglary that also involved her brother.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
