Death sentence for cult leader reduced -- The death sentence of the cult leader, Rod Ferrell, now 20, condemned for fatally beating a Eustis couple, was reduced to life in prison by the state Supreme Court. Florida's high court ruled more than a year ago that the state can not execute killers who committed their crime before age 17. The July 1999 decision said allowing such a rare punishment would be cruel and unusual and therefore unconstitutional. Ferrell, was 16 when he killed.
