(WAFF) - A man on Alabama's death row for the rape and murder of a nurse loses another appeal.
The Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals rejected the latest appeal from Jason Michael Sharp.
He had argued his conviction and sentence should be overturned.
The Montgomery-based Equal Justice Initiative filed the appeal known as a Rule 32 petition two years ago.
The denial is the latest twist in a legal case that's taken several turns since Sharp's arrest in 1999 for the stabbing death of nurse Tracy Morris.
Sharp remains on death row in Holman prison awaiting a date set for his execution.
