FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - The Arkansas Supreme Court has rejected the appeal of a death row inmate convicted of killing two people in Fayetteville.

The Northwest Arkansas Democrat Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1Qebz3k ) that the court said Thursday that it will not consider further appeals from 29-year-old Gregory Decay. The court in 2009 upheld Decay’s convictions and later rejected an appeal that his attorneys were ineffective.

The latest appeal argued that jury selection was flawed and asked the court to again review the case.

Decay was convicted and given two death sentences for the April 2007 shooting deaths of Kevin Barkley Jones and Kendall Rachell Rice in their Fayetteville apartment. Police say Decay killed the two because he believed they had broken into his apartment and stolen marijuana and a gun.
