While under arrest for an unrelated offense, Raymond Levi Cobb confessed to a home burglary, but denied knowledge relating to the disappearance of a woman and child from the home. Cobb was indicted on a charge of burglary, and an attorney was appointed to represent him. Later, while Cobb was out on bond, Cobb’s father informed police that Cobb had confessed to him that he (Cobb) had murdered the woman and child. Police then took Cobb into custody. Cobb waived his Miranda rights, confessed to the murders, and led officers to the place where the bodies were buried. He appealed his consequent conviction and death sentence, arguing that because police had not secured the permission of his attorney from the burglary case before conducting the interrogation regarding the murders, his confession should have been suppressed. Was he correct?
