Ky. Supreme Court Upholds 3 Convictions

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Supreme Court has upheld the
convictions of three death row inmates, including the state's only woman sentenced to death.

The court on Thursday upheld the murder convictions of Virginia Caudill, Jonathan Wayne Goforth and Robert Foley.

Caudill and Goforth were convicted of the 1998 killing of 73-year-old Lonetta White. The two were convicted of bludgeoning her to death with a hammer. White's body was then put in the trunk of her own car, which was set ablaze.

Foley is a former FBI informant convicted of six killings in eastern Kentucky. He was sentenced to death in 1993 for killing Rodney and Lynn Vaughn during a dispute at his home.
