High Court Refuses to Hear Spurlock Appeal

The Mississippi Supreme Court Thursday refused to hear an appeal from a Lauderdale County man convicted of capital murder in a 2004 slaying.

The state Court of Appeals upheld Carl Spurlock's conviction in November.

Spurlock was sentenced to life in prison for the robbery and slaying of Larry Finch.

Spurlock contended there was no physical evidence, only Robert Van Morrison's testimony, that linked Spurlock to the crime.

According to the court record, Morrison testified that he accompanied Spurlock to Finch's home and saw Spurlock stab Finch and then beat the man with a table leg.
