Court Rejects Appeal for White Supremacist Challenging Conviction in Arkansas Triple Killing - ky3.com
A federal appeals court has rejected an appeal from a white supremacist who challenged his murder conviction after his defense attorneys tried to pick a jury with as many black members as possible.
Chevie Kehoe was sentenced to life in prison for the 1996 killings of an Arkansas family. His accomplice received a death sentence.
Kehoe argues that he received ineffectual counsel because of his attorneys’ jury-selection strategy. The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed Kehoe’s conviction Monday.
