US Supreme Court rejects Neb. bank killer appeal

The U.S. Supreme Court has rejected without comment an appeal by a man who helped carry out one of the deadliest botched bank heists in U.S. history.

The high court's decision Monday means Jose Sandoval will remain on Nebraska's death row. The decision backs one last year by the Nebraska Supreme Court, which upheld Sandoval's death sentence.

Sandoval and two other men were each sentenced to death for killing five people at a U.S. Bank branch in Norfolk on Sept. 26, 2002. A fourth man who served as a lookout was sentenced to five consecutive life sentences.
