LITTLE ROCK â€” A death row inmate will not get a new sentencing hearing for his conviction in a 1993 killing at a Little Rock laundry, as Arkansas' highest court rejected Thursday his argument that jurors didn't properly consider factors such as his troubled childhood.
In a 4-3 ruling, the state Supreme Court rejected the bid by Terrick Nooner to vacate his death sentence and send the case back to a lower court for resentencing. Nooner, 42, was convicted of killing Scot Stobaugh, 22, during a robbery. A second person also was convicted and sentenced to life in prison without parole.
