JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - The Mississippi Supreme Court will hear appeal from Kendrick Cowart who was convicted in Pike County for his role in the 2009 robbery of a check-cashing business and the beating death of employee Sue Carter.

The case is among dozens the court will hear during its July-August term. Oral arguments are not scheduled.

Cowart was one of three people convicted in the case. He was sentenced in 2012 to serve 48 years for armed robbery and five for conspiracy for a total of 53 years. Cowart was acquitted of murder.

Prosecutors say Cowart was accused of robbing and fatally beating of 57-year-old Carter at Express Check Cash on July 10, 2009.
