Appeals court to review Pleau case

December 21, 2011

WOONSOCKET — The death penalty was back in play yesterday for accused murderer Jason Wayne Pleau as a federal appeals court in Boston said it would reconsider whether Gov. Chafee has the right to continue safeguarding him in state custody.
A majority of the First Circuit Court of Appeals voted Wednesday in favor of a review of the issue by the full court, setting a hearing for April 4. The decision came in response to an appeal filed by U.S. Attorney Peter Neronha after a three-member judicial panel of the court handed a victory to Chafee in the battle for custody of Pleau two months ago.
