Court rejects appeals for Arizona death row inmates

A federal appeals court has turned down appeals filed on behalf of two brothers on Arizona's death row for a pair of killings in Mohave County.

The San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Monday ruled against Robert W. Murray and Roger W. Murray.

Both were convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to death for the 1991 fatal shootings of 65-year-old Dean Morrison and 60-year-old Jacqueline Appelhans.

The victims operated a store and restaurant at Grasshopper Junction in a rural area near Kingman.
