The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday rejected the final appeals of two men on Oklahoma’s death row, including one who raped and killed an Oklahoma County infant in 1997.
Without comment, the court rejected the appeals of Charles Frederick Warren and Clayton Lockett.
Warren was given the death penalty after a trial in 2003 for killing Adriana Waller, the 11-month-old child of Warner’s girlfriend. He was given a separate sentence of 75 years for raping the child.
Lockett was sentenced to death for his role in the 1999 killing of Stephanie Michelle Neiman in Perry.
