LITTLE ROCK — An Arkansas inmate is asking the state Supreme Court to reconsider its decision upholding his capital murder convictions for the deaths of two men whose bodies were found inside a crushed vehicle at a salvage yard.

Attorneys for Tyler Barefield petitioned the court Wednesday for a rehearing over its decision upholding his convictions in the slayings of Aaron Brock and Beau DeWitt. Barefield was sentenced to life without parole in the slayings.

The men were fatally shot, and their bodies were found crushed inside a vehicle at a salvage yard owned by Barefield's family in Russellville.

Barefield's attorneys also asked the court to stay its mandate if the request for a rehearing is denied so they could petition the U.S. Supreme Court.

    He must really be regretting his vigilante justice. Too bad, so sad, if you can't do the time, don't do the crime.

    Who knows if by all reasonable doubt that this conviction is upheld by some severe evidence that proves the convicted guilty beyond reasonable doubt , obviously the prosecutor thought so ... let's hope this guy isn't sitting on death row for a crime he didn't commit & the killer/ killers aren't still out here in the " free world" their is plenty of people sent to prison that are unbelievably innocent . May God be with all involved & God bless the families of those no longer with Us!

    I'd be trying to get out too if I was in Varner Supermax. He's just a little guy and I bet he's in protective custody.
