OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The U.S. Supreme Court has rejected the appeals of three Oklahoma death row inmates.

The Oklahoman reports (https://bit.ly/2dUAUlv ) the nation’s highest court declined to review the inmates’ appeals on Monday.

The appeals were filed by Phillip Hancock, who was convicted in the 2001 shooting deaths of two Oklahoma City men; Julius Darius Jones, who was a University of Oklahoma freshman convicted in the death of an Edmond insurance company executive; and Anthony Castillo Sanchez, convicted of raping and killing OU dance student Juli Busken in 1996. Busken was from Benton, Arkansas.

Eleven Oklahoma death row inmates are eligible for execution dates when the state resumes lethal injections. Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt has delayed seeking execution dates while the Oklahoma Department of Corrections reviews the state’s lethal injection process.
