|Court rejects appeal from death row inmate|
(AP) A federal appeals court panel has upheld the death sentence of a Virginia inmate who ate his cellmate’s breakfast and then strangled him for complaining.
In a 2-1 ruling May 8, the panel upheld a district court’s denial of Carlos David Caro’s challenge of his death sentence.
The panel also rejected Caro’s claim that the government violated his rights by withholding data about housing dangerous inmates at the government’s Supermax prison in Colorado. The panel said that claim was procedurally barred after having been previously denied.
