Supreme Court Declines to Review Kansas Serial killer’s Case

KSAL StaffOctober 3, 2016

The U.S. Supreme Court has declined to review the case of a Kansas serial killer who stuffed the bodies of several victims into barrels.

Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt says Monday’s ruling leaves John Robinson’s capital murder conviction and death sentence intact. Robinson was convicted of killing seven women and a teenage girl in Kansas and Missouri in cases dating back to 1984. Investigators say he lured some victims with promises of work or sex.

Schmidt says this is the first death penalty case to exhaust direct appeals since capital punishment was reinstated in 1994 in Kansas. The case now returns to Kansas courts for further proceedings.

His attorney didn’t immediately return a phone message from The Associated Press.
