HOUSTON (AP) — The U.S. Supreme Court has rejected an appeal from a South Texas street gang member sent to death row for the fatal shooting of four women 10 years ago in the border town of Donna.
The high court without comment Tuesday refused to review the case of 30-year-old Robert Garza.
Evidence showed he fired at least 50 times into a car, killing the women who authorities described as illegal immigrants from Mexico working at a rundown cantina in Donna in Hidalgo County.
Garza was identified as belonging to the Tri-City Bombers and was carrying out a gang-ordered hit on women who testified against a gang member.
Evidence also showed the hit was botched and the victims weren't involved in the other case.
He does not yet have an execution date.
