PHOENIX (AP) - Saying that finality is long overdue, a federal appeals court is spurning the latest appeal on behalf of an Arizona death row inmate convicted of the 1986 killing of a Nevada man.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals this week refused to reconsider a previous ruling that turned down an appeal on behalf of Graham Sanders Henry.

The appellate court said it won't reconsider Henry's appeal because that would delay Supreme Court review of the case, including Henry's convictions for what the court's order called his "ghastly crimes" from nearly 28 years ago.

Henry was sentenced to die for killing Las Vegas-area resident Roy Estes. He was driven to the desert north of Kingman in Arizona's Mohave County where he was stabbed in the heart and his throat cut.
