No. 71-224.

409 U.S. 224 (1972)


Supreme Court of United States.

Decided December 7, 1972.

Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

Kenneth M. Romines, Assistant Attorney General of Missouri, argued the cause for petitioner. With him on the brief was John C. Danforth, Attorney General.

Mark M. Hennelly, by appointment of the Court, 405 U.S. 913, argued the cause and filed a brief for respondent.

MR. JUSTICE WHITE delivered the opinion of the Court.

This case has a long and tortured history and is not yet concluded. At this juncture the question is whether, absent further state court proceedings to determine the voluntariness of his confession, respondent's 1955 conviction for murder is vulnerable to attack under the Fourteenth Amendment as construed and applied in Jackson v. Denno, 378 U.S. 368 (1964).
