GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - The Mississippi Supreme Court has upheld the murder convictions of two Harrison County men.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1WnadAZ) the high court affirmed the convictions of Ira Donell Bowser and Correy James Dartez on Thursday. Both were sentenced to life in prison in June 2014.

A Harrison County jury convicted Bowser of killing his girlfriend, Shabree Page, at her Pass Christian apartment June 9, 2012. Page was stabbed 29 times and left dead on the floor with her 5-year-old daughter still in the residence.

A jury in Biloxi convicted Dartez in the killing of his wife, Victoria, Jan. 30, 2013. She was smothered with a pillow. The jury heard testimony that she had health problems and was worried she wouldn’t live long; also that Dartez was worried he couldn’t afford her medications.
