Judge Rejects New Bail Hearing in Barbershop Killings

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. (AP) - A Delaware judge has denied a new bail hearing for a former death-row inmate charged with killing a man and a young boy at a Wilmington barbershop in 2001.
    
Chauncey Starling was sentenced to death for the killings of 5-year-old Damon Gist Jr. and 28-year-old Darnell Evans at the Made 4 Men barbershop.
    
Delaware's Supreme Court ruled in December that Starling was entitled to a new trial because of his defense attorney's mistakes and prosecutors' failure to disclose information about the state's key witness.
    
Following that ruling, Starling's attorneys sought a new hearing to determine whether he is eligible for bail while awaiting a re-trial.
    
A judge this week rejected the request, saying a 2002 court ruling that Starling was not entitled to bail remains the law of the case.
