WICHITA FALLS, Texas (AP) - The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals has dismissed a convicted serial killer’s latest effort to duck a death sentence for a Wichita Falls woman’s death during a murderous rampage from late 1984 to early 1986.

The Wichita Falls Times Record News (https://bit.ly/1BHOFJe) reports Faryion Wardrip argued that a public defender did not adequately represent him in his original trial.

The 55-year-old was convicted in 1999 of killing four women after having already served 11 years in prison for killing another Wichita Falls woman in 1986.

The case now returns to U.S. Magistrate Paul D. Stickney, who has had the habeas corpus case since 2002. Stickney is under no deadline to send the case back to trial judge in Wichita Falls to set an execution date.
