20 years ago O.J. Simpson's ex-wife and her friend were murdered

Posted: Updated:
Los Angeles County, CA - It's not the kind of anniversary that anyone would celebrate but Friday is the 20th anniversary of the killing of O.J. Simpson's ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman.

And, coincidentally, know that last week O.J. had his attorneys resubmit their appeal to the Nevada Supreme Court seeking a new trial in the former football star's Las Vegas kidnapping and armed robbery case.

The attorneys ask that the court reconsider whether Simpson's trial attorney in 2008 had conflicts of interest and botched his defense, according to the Associated Press.

Simpson's former attorney, Yale Galanter, notes that a Nevada judge ruled last year that Simpson failed to demonstrate how Galanter's actions changed the outcome of the case.

That judge said evidence was overwhelming that Simpson orchestrated the September 2007 kidnapping and robbery of two sports memorabilia dealers, the Associated Press reported.

But it was back almost 20 years ago that O.J. Simpson went from former football star to murder suspect, a suspect in the brutal killings of Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman. The two were found brutally massacred June 13, 1994 outside her Bundy Drive condominium.

After an eight-month trial, O.J. Simpson was acquitted of killing the two on Oct. 3, 1995.

Some think that Simpson's being convicted years and years later on the sports memorabilia charges is a "Karma conviction" because so many people still believe he killed the two and "got away with it."
