TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- The Florida Supreme Court is upholding a murder conviction against a man convicted of killing a Jacksonville convenience store clerk in 1990.
The court ruled Thursday that there was not enough evidence to throw out the conviction against death row inmate Anthony Mungin.
Back in 2011 a divided court granted a new hearing after a new witness said he was first on the scene of the murder. That testimony contradicted a trial witness.
But the justices concluded that while there may be conflicting testimony there was nothing to show that police suppressed evidence that could have helped Mungin defend himself.
Experts said that a gun found at Mungin's home in Kingsland, Ga., was used in the Jacksonville killing and two shootings in Monticello and Tallahassee. Those victims survived.
