EDDYVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A Kentucky death row inmate’s bid to reopen appeals in his case has been turned away by a federal appeals court.

The U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati has ruled that 57-year-old Robert Carl Foley failed to show he was denied a constitutional right when a federal judge turned away his efforts to continue fighting his conviction and death sentence.

Foley was convicted of killing six people in eastern Kentucky in 1989 and 1991, making him the most prolific killer on the state’s death row.

He had been seeking to challenge his trial attorney’s handling of ballistics evidence and potential expert testimony.
