LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Supreme Court has unanimously rejected a claim that new evidence cast doubt on two murder convictions of most prolific killer on Kentucky's death row.
The high court on Thursday ruled that an expert witness for 57-year-old Robert Carl Foley merely re-examined old evidence and witness statements in the deaths of brothers Rodney and Lynn Vaughn in 1991 but didn't present anything not previously known.
Foley claimed a firearms expert's examination shows he acted in self-defense when he shot the brothers in Laurel County 23 years ago. Along with the Vaughns, Foley was convicted of killing four other people in eastern Kentucky in 1989 and 1991.
