Kendrick Simpson

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The appeal of an Oklahoma death row inmate convicted of the drive-by shooting deaths of two men in 2006 has been rejected by the U.S. Supreme Court.

The Oklahoman reports that the nation’s highest court Tuesday declined to review the case of 39-year-old Kendrick Simpson, whose appeal was previously rejected by state and federal appeals courts.

Simpson was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to die in the deaths of 20-year-old Glen Palmer and 19-year-old Anthony Jones.
