Death Row Inmate loses at Supreme Court

The U.S. Supreme Court has refused to review the case of a former Army recruiter set to die next month for the slaying of a Sudanese woman eight years ago in Fort Worth.
Condemned inmate Cleve Foster faces lethal injection Jan. 11 for the abduction, rape and shooting death of Nyaneur “Mary” Pal on Valentine’s Day 2002.
The high court Monday rejected Foster’s appeal, without comment.
The 47-year-old Foster insists he’s innocent. He’s one of two men sentenced to die for the 28-year-old woman’s slaying.
DNA tests tied both Foster and his roommate, Sheldon Ward, to Pal’s death, though Ward tried to accept sole responsibility for the killing.
Ward also was convicted and sent to death row. The 30-year-old condemned inmate died of cancer in May.
