Court denies bid for new death penalty hearing in laundry mat killing

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas' highest court has denied a bid to reopen the case of a death row inmate convicted of a 1993 killing at a Little Rock laundry.

The state Supreme Court on Thursday denied Terrick Nooner's request to vacate his death sentence and order a new sentencing hearing in his capital murder conviction for the killing of Scot Stobaugh. Nooner's attorneys had argued for the new sentencing hearing on grounds the jury didn't consider evidence that he had a troubled childhood.

His attorneys also argued that the jury was incorrectly instructed to evaluate mitigating circumstances only if they existed at the time of the murder.

Justices ruled that Nooner hadn't demonstrated extraordinary circumstances to justify reopening the case for a new sentencing hearing.

Reminder from AGFC: Unattended wildlife should be left alone

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission is issuing a reminder that residents who find unattended wildlife should leave the animals alone.

The commission says its common to find unattended baby animals during the spring and summer - especially fawns.

Commission deer biologist Ralph Meeker says the fawns mothers are usually within hearing or visual range and periodically check on the young. He says most wild animals don't spend much time next to their young in order to not attract predators to the area - including humans.

Meeker says a fawn or other young animals found in danger in or near a road or in the path of farm equipment it can be moved a few feet - but should never be removed from the immediate area.
