LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas — Arkansas' highest court has upheld the conviction of a doctor serving a life sentence for killing two men at a Conway home in 2002.

The Arkansas Supreme Court on Thursday upheld the 2013 capital murder conviction of Richard Conte in the deaths of Carter Elliott and Timothy Robertson. Prosecutors charged Conte in 2011 as he was being released from prison in Nevada, where he was serving time for kidnapping his ex-wife, who was once married to Carter Elliott.

Conte had appealed on several points, including arguing that the case should have been dismissed because of the nine-year delay in filing charges against him.
