Court Rejects Appeal Of Convicted Oklahoma Killer
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- A federal appeals court has rejected the appeal of a man sentenced to death for killing two Oklahoma City women more than 25 years ago. The U.S. 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver on Monday rejected the claims by 53-year-old Ronald Lott. Lott was convicted in December 2001 after several trial delays of raping and killing 83-year-old Anna Laura Fowler in 1986 and 93-year-old Zelma Cutler in 1987. Lott was sentenced to death in January 2002 for both murder convictions. The appeals court rejected several arguments by Lott -- including ineffective counsel, prosecutorial misconduct, insufficient evidence, erroneous jury instructions and violation of his right to a speedy trial. Lott's attorney did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment.
