Alfonso R. Salazar

Alfonso R. Salazar - On July 25, 1986, Salazar and Michael Davis pulled the wrought iron bars from a window and entered the Tucson home of Sarah Kaplan. Ms. Kaplan was 83 years old, weighed less than 90 pounds, was 5 feet tall, and wore a patch on one eye. Salazar and Davis beat her and strangled her with the telephone cord. Fingerprints belonging to both men were found at the scene. One of Salazar's prints was in blood. In a separate trial, Davis was convicted and sentenced to death, but was granted a retrial because of ineffective assistance of counsel, and ultimately received a life sentence.
