WASHINGTON — The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday declined to review the appeals of three Oklahoma death row inmates.
Eleven inmates are now eligible for execution dates when the state resumes lethal injections.
Without comment, the justices rejected appeals from:
•Phillip Hancock, now 52, convicted of two counts of first-degree murder for the 2001 shooting deaths of Robert L. Jett Jr., 37, and James V. Lynch, 58, both of Oklahoma City.
•Julius Darius Jones, now 36, who was a University of Oklahoma freshman when he shot and killed Edmond insurance company executive Paul Howell, 45, in the driveway of his parents’ home in Edmond in 1999.
•Anthony Castillo Sanchez, now 37, convicted of raping and murdering OU dance student Jewell Buskin in 1996.
