A Texas man on Nebraska's death row for killing two men has appealed his case to the state Supreme Court.
Marco Torres Jr., formerly of Pasadena, Texas, was convicted of two counts of first-degree murder and other charges in the 2007 shooting deaths of two Grand Island, Neb., men, 48-year-old Timothy Donohue and 60-year-old Edward Hall.
Prosecutors said Torres fled to Texas after the shootings and burned Hall's car in a remote area. He was arrested in Houston.
Torres is asking the high court to throw out his conviction because some evidence shouldn't have been allowed, and his objection to the sentencing process shouldn't have resulted in a death sentence, among other things.
Arguments will be heard March 2.
