LITTLE ROCK — The Arkansas Supreme Court has rejected the appeal of an Oklahoma man convicted in 2005 of killing two women at a De Queen cemetery monument company.

The court on Thursday rejected the appeals of Mickey Dale Thomas in the 2004 deaths of 46-year-old Mona Lee Shelton and 45-year-old Donna Marie Cary.

Thomas had argued that his trial attorney should have called a police officer to testify that there was no indication of sexual assault of the victims and that his attorney should have objected to the trial being moved to Pike County.

Prosecutors in Oklahoma have alleged that Thomas killed a Broken Bow woman two days before Shelton and Cary were killed — but say there is no point in trying him considering his death sentence in Arkansas.
