Supreme Court of Virginia turns down Va. Tech killer’s appeal


RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) — The Virginia Supreme Court upheld the murder convictions of a man whose crimes terrorized the Virginia Tech community one year before Cho Seung-Hui.

WDBJ reports that the state’s highest court has dismissed the appeals filed by William Morva.

He was sentenced to death for shooting and killing a deputy and a hospital security guard in 2006.

The search for Morva caused the university to cancel the first day of classes.
