Court Denies Review of Galloway Death Sentence

By  | 

Jackson, Miss.

The U.S. Supreme Court has refused to hear an appeal from Mississippi death row inmate Leslie "Bo" Galloway, III.

Galloway was convicted of raping and killing a Harrison Central High senior in 2008.

Prosecutors say Galloway killed the teenager and dumped her body in a rural wooded area off Mississippi Highway 15. Hunters found her body.

In 2013, the Mississippi Supreme Court upheld Galloway's 2010 conviction and death sentence in the slaying of Shakeylia Anderson of Gulfport.

The U.S. Supreme Court, without comment Tuesday, declined to hear an appeal from Galloway.
