The Kentucky Supreme Court has declined to reconsider the case of a death row inmate seeking to be executed for the murders of two children.
The high court on Thursday turned away a request by the court-appointed lawyers for Marco Allen Chapman to reconsider his case.
Chapman pleaded guilty in 2004 to killing 7-year-old Chelbi Sharon and 6-year-old Cody Sharon, and attacking their mother, Carolyn Marksberry, and their older sister, Courtney Sharon, in the small town of Warsaw in northern Kentucky.
Chapman told The Associated Press in an interview in May that he wanted no further appeals on his behalf and to be executed as soon as possible.
