LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A federal appeals court has rejected an Arkansas death row inmate's appeal of his conviction of killing a man inside a Little Rock laundromat.
Terrick Terrell Nooner was convicted and sentenced to die for the 1993 shooting death of 22-year-old Scot Stobaugh inside Fun Wash laundromat.
A three-judge panel of the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis on Friday upheld a federal judge's ruling that rejected Nooner's appeals.
Nooner's attorneys argued that grainy video surveillance from inside the laundromat shows the killer was about 5-feet-6-inches tall. Nooner is 5-feet-9 while his alleged accomplice - Robert Rockett - is 5-feet-6.
Rockett also testified that he - not Nooner - killed Stobaugh. Rockett previously said that Nooner was the killer.
A three-judge panel rejected the arguments as not credible.
