Matthews v. Workman, No. 07-6209
In a capital habeas matter, the denial of Petitioner's petition is affirmed, where 1) an allegedly improper juror communication did not prejudice Petitioner, because the defense made no appeal to residual doubt in the penalty phase; and 2) the prosecutor did not reference any extra-record evidence in his argument.
