PHOENIX (CBS5/AP) -
The U.S. Supreme Court has denied last-minute appeals on behalf of an Arizona death-row inmate scheduled for execution Wednesday.
The Supreme Court declined without comment to block the execution of Richard Dale Stokley.
He is scheduled to be put to death at 10 a.m. Wednesday.
Stokley and another man were convicted of murdering 13-year-olds Mandy Meyers and Mary Snyder in rural Cochise County in 1991.
Stokley's lawyers said he was entitled to a new hearing on sentencing evidence. They also said his constitutional rights are being violated because another man convicted in the case has been released after serving 20 years in prison.
Prosecutors said the Arizona Supreme Court adequately considered evidence on possible leniency for Stokley. Prosecutors defend the disparity in sentences by saying the other man negotiated a plea agreement.
