The Associated Press - April 28, 2017 11:33 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals has upheld the murder conviction and life prison sentence of a Tulsa woman in the beating death of a man in Tulsa; however, the court did overturn the woman’s kidnapping conviction in the case.
The court’s ruling on Thursday rejected appeals by 32-year-old Angel Marie Proctor of insufficient and improperly admitted evidence, improper jury instructions and prosecutorial misconduct.
The court did find that Proctor was improperly convicted of both murder while committing a kidnapping and of kidnapping. The court said convictions of both crimes violates the protection against double jeopardy.
Proctor was convicted for her role in the 2013 beating death of Quinton Shaver in Tulsa.
Co-defendant George July is also serving life in prison after being convicted of murder in Shaver’s death.
