In documents filed with the court Tuesday, Hood says Turner has exhausted his state and federal appeals.

On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear Turner’s claim that his attorney should have done a better job at his trial. State and federal courts in Mississippi had also rejected that claim.

Turner convicted for the 1995 deaths in Carroll County of Eddie Brooks and Everett Curry.

Brooks, a clerk at Mims Auto Truck Village on U.S. Highway 82, was killed on the job. Curry, a prison guard, was shot to death while pumping gasoline at Mims One Stop on U.S. 82, according to the court record.
