A man who was once on death row was re-sentenced in Hartford Superior Court Wednesday.

A stoic and seemingly emotionless 33-year-old Lazale Ashby never once looked at the family of the woman he was convicted of murdering.

In 2008, Ashby was sentenced to death plus another 125 years in prison for the 2002 rape and murder of 21-year-old Elizabeth Garcia.

“I know it is effectively a technical change now in the sentence because of the case-law,” Senior Assistant State’s Attorney John Fahey said during the court proceedings Wednesday.

The hearing was a re-sentencing of two of the nine counts in the case after the state Supreme Court ruled in 2015 that the death penalty was unconstitutional.

The sentences of all death row inmates had to be revised following the ruling.

“The sentence of the court is life without the possibility of release,” said Judge Laura Baldini during the sentencing.

Ashby is also serving time for a 2003 murder.

The Connecticut Supreme Court is set to hear the appeal of former death row inmate Lazale Ashby, who says he was wrongly convicted of murder and sexual assault in the 2002 slaying of a single mother in Hartford.

Ashby was convicted in 2008 in the rape and strangulation of Elizabeth Garcia inside her apartment as her 2-year-old daughter watched television in another room. He was sentenced to death, but the sentence was changed to life in prison after the state abolished capital punishment in 2015.

Ashby says he had consensual sex with Garcia the night of the killing and another man’s DNA was found on her body. He says police did not adequately investigate and state officials failed to disclose evidence in his favor.
