Court upholds El Reno man's murder conviction
May 21, 2013 13:38 GMT
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- The Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals has upheld the first-degree murder conviction and life without parole sentence of an El Reno man.
The court on Monday rejected several appeals by Thomas Twobabies -- including that he was not allowed to present a complete defense. Twobabies argued that prosecutors prejudiced him when they did not introduce at trial the statements Twobabies made to police in which he claimed self-defense and voluntary intoxication.
The court ruled that Twobabies had the opportunity to testify and present his defense and he chose not to do so.
The 29-year-old Twobabies was convicted in January 2012 of the December 2010 stabbing death of Neihhi Hamilton in El Reno.
