Judge denies slaying case appeal

Posted By on Mon, Jan 11, 2010 at 4:53 PM

Federal Judge Leon Holmes today rejected Death Row inmate Terrick Nooner's claim that he'd been mistakenly identified as the killer in the 1993 Little Rock washateria slaying of Scot Stobaugh.

Here's the judge's order.

Nooner claimed new evidence -- more sophisticated analysis of security camera video than was available at his trial and the recanting of earlier testimony by police witnesses. The defense was trying to pin the actual shooting on an accomplice, Robert Rockett. But the judge didn't find the evidence conclusive proof of Nooner's innocence.
