Condemned Fort Worth man loses US Supreme Court appeal

HOUSTON (AP) — A 31-year-old Fort Worth man on death row for an assistant manager's slaying during a robbery at an amusement center nine years ago has lost an appeal at the U.S. Supreme Court.

The justices on Monday refused to review the case of Paul David Storey.

Storey was convicted and condemned for the October 2006 fatal shooting of 28-year-old Jonas Cherry at a Putt-Putt mini-golf center in Hurst. Storey, who previously worked at the amusement center, was linked to the slaying when his SUV showed up on a security camera video during the time of the robbery and shooting.

He and a companion, who pleaded guilty and took a life sentence, collected about $150 in the robbery.

Storey does not yet have an execution date.
