Argued: October 16, 2007

Before: KEARSE and KATZMANN, Circuit Judges, and RAKOFF,*fn1 District Judge.

Defendant Paul Ryan Douglas appeals from an amended judgment, entered in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York following a jury trial before Colleen McMahon, Judge, convicting him of killing a person in connection with an attempt to enter a bank with intent to commit a crime therein, in violation of 18 U.S.C. §§ 2113(a) and (e), and sentencing him principally to a mandatory term of life imprisonment and ordering him to pay $11,081.44 in restitution. On appeal, Douglas contends principally (1) that, because a § 2113(e) offense may be punished by death, he was entitled to representation by two attorneys, see 18 U.S.C. § 3005, and the district court erred in dismissing one of his two appointed attorneys after the government stated that it would not seek the death penalty; (2) that the government engaged in impermissible discrimination in the use of a peremptory challenge during jury selection; (3) that there were various errors in connection with the eyewitness identification evidence admitted against him; and (4) that evidence obtained in violation of his privilege against self-incrimination should not have been admitted in evidence in the government’s rebuttal case. For the reasons that follow, we affirm.
