OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals has upheld the murder conviction and life without parole sentence of a man in a Lawton motel slaying.
The court on Thursday rejected appeals by 33-year-old Roy Lee White Jr. that included insufficient evidence, improper evidence, improper jury instructions, and ineffective counsel.
White was convicted of the December 3rd, 2015, fatal shooting of Donald Brewer inside a motel room in Lawton. He was also convicted of being a felon in possession of a firearm.
Prosecutors say the shooting came during an argument over money.
