Ring v. Arizona , 536 U.S. 584 (2002), is a case in which the United States Supreme Court applied the rule of Apprendi v.
Ronald Clark O'Bryan (nicknamed The Candyman ) (October 19, 1944 – March 31, 1984) was a murderer from Deer Park , Texas convicted of killing his eight-year-old son Timothy on Halloween , 1974 with cyanide -laced candy in order to claim life insurance money. He may have also distributed poisoned candy to other children in an attempt to cover up his crime; but neither his daughter Elizabeth nor any other child ate any poisoned candy. O'Bryan was eight months behind on his car payments and had total debts of almost $100,000.
