George Cullins, R.I.P.

Major George Cullins, USMC (Ret.) died today of complications following an auto accident.

Major Cullins' daughter Janette was murdered on April 12, 1984.  Trial and appeal for the perpetrator took two decades.  See 36 Cal.4th 1215 (2005).  Major Cullins became a tireless campaigner against the atrocious delays in capital cases. 

Regrettably, he did not live to see justice carried out in his daughter's case.  It remains mired in habeas corpus.  This is a sad day for the cause of justice.
