Court won't get involved in RI inmate tug-of-war - Article Photos 1/1

FILE - This undated inmate file photo provided by the Rhode Island Department of Corrections shows Jason Pleau, charged in the fatal shooting of a man outside a bank in Woonsocket, R.I., in September 2010. The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday, Jan. 14, 2013, refused to hear an appeal from Pleau and the state, and won't stop the federal government from claiming Pleau, who will face the possibility of the death penalty if convicted of murder. Pleau initially had been in state custody. After federal prosecutors charged him, Gov. Lincoln Chafee refused to turn over Pleau, citing the state's rejection of the death penalty.
