|Death row inmates lose at Supreme Court|
|By Associated Press|
TEXAS - The U.S. Supreme Court refused appeals Monday from two Texas death row inmates, including a Mexican national convicted of gunning down three El Paso teenagers a dozen years ago. Ignacio Gomez had asked the court to review his capital murder conviction for the 1996 shooting deaths of 16-year-old twin brothers Michael and Matthew Meredith and 19-year-old Toby Hatheway Jr. The three were shot in an apparent retaliation for some broken windows at the home of Gomez's mother. Their bodies were buried in a shallow grave in the desert.
