The Supreme Court has rejected an appeal for a new trial for death row inmate Mumia Abu-Jamal, convicted in the 1981 killing of a Philadelphia police officer.
The justices did not comment on their action Monday, which leaves in place a state Supreme Court ruling upholding Abu-Jamal’s murder conviction.
Separately, a federal appeals court also has upheld the conviction, but ordered a new sentencing hearing.
Officer Daniel Faulkner was shot to death after pulling over Abu-Jamal’s brother in an overnight traffic stop.
