Jens Soering and Elizabeth Haysom back in the news

During my undergraduate and law school days, I read with interest the press accounts of the Bedford County murder cases against Jens Soering and Elizabeth Haysom, who are about my age, both started at U.Va. while I was there, and the cases involved teenagers who thought they were just way too smart to ever be punished by down-home law enforcement officers.

They are back in the news this week as Soering will soon be up for parole for the first time - the Richmond Times has stories here and here.
