There slept a Harris family friend, Marque Surles, 7. Multiple forms of evidence corroborated Sells's confession and Krystal's uncontradicted testimony, including: the location of the murder weapon; the medical examiner's testimony regarding Kaylene's injuries; forensic tests confirming the presence of Sells's blood and clothing fibers on Kaylene; and forensic tests confirming the presence of Kaylene's blood and clothing fibers on Sells. Sells argues that Mc Donald's representation was deficient because Mc Donald failed to diligently investigate and offer proof of the trial attorney's failure to develop and present mitigating evidence at sentencing. Sells's reliance upon the length of his habeas petition or the number of claims it raises in no way establishes the unreasonableness of Mc Donald's actions.
In the master bedroom, he flicked his lighter again and found Crystal Harris asleep with her daughter Lori, 12.

We begin by examining whether Sells can carry his burden of establishing the constitutional inadequacy of his first habeas counsel, Terry Mc Donald (Mc Donald). Men gather for iftar, the breaking of the fast, during Ramadan in June at the Islamic Society of East Bay mosque in Fremont, Calif.The mosque turned to a court-appointed arbitrator from outside the Muslim community to deal with turmoil in its management.The man used the blade he was carrying, a 12-inch boning knife, to try to trip the lock on the back door. Upon being arrested, Sells immediately confessed to the murder. That failed, and so did an attempt to enter the home through a rear window that held an air conditioner. In a videotaped statement of his confession, Sells indicated that he was glad to have been caught so that he would not hurt others, and briefly alluded to another young girl that he may have murdered in Kentucky.
