OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals has upheld the murder conviction of a Garvin County man.

The court on Friday rejected appeals by 45-year-old Martin High of Wynnewood in the beating death of another Wynnewood man.

High was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life without parole in the September 2011 beating death of Glen Woods Brownlee during a break-in at Brownlee’s home.

The court rejected High’s argument that a 911 call from a man in a separate break-in should not have been allowed to be played during his trial.

Prosecutors say evidence collected from the separate break-in led investigators to High and to the discovery of evidence that implicated High in the death of Brownlee.
