TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - The Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals has upheld the convictions of a man who was sentenced to life without parole for killing his uncle and one other man three years ago.

Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange announced that Alexius Rhamon Foster’s appeal was rejected Friday, Al.com reported (https://bit.ly/2gKDDhL).

Foster, 38, was convicted in November 2015 of the capital murder of his uncle, George Foster, Jr., 57, and for the murder of Antonio Williams, 30.

George Foster was stabbed to death in June 2013 during what authorities believe was a robbery. Antonio Williams was last seen in July 2013 and his remains were found by hunters two months later.

Alexius Foster was sentenced last year to concurrent life sentences without the possibility of parole for his capital murder conviction. He also was sentenced to life in prison for his murder conviction and 20 years in prison for his theft conviction.

Prosecutors said Alexius Foster targeted Williams because he thought Williams spoke with police about the slaying.

Details of Alexius Foster’s appeal were unclear.
