JEFFERSON CITY — The state Supreme Court has upheld two death sentences given to a central Missouri man who admitted to killing his cousin and her husband in Callaway County.
Brian Dorsey was sentenced to death in 2008 for the killings of Sarah and Ben Bonnie on Christmas Eve at their home in New Bloomfield. Evidence suggested that Sarah Bonnie was raped and that her body was doused with bleach. Dorsey, of Jefferson City, pleaded guilty to shooting the couple with a shotgun.
Dorsey's attorney had argued that he should not be executed but sentenced to a life prison term. The Missouri Supreme Court voted 8-0 to uphold both death sentences.
