Court upholds death sentence in Montgomery slaying

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A state appeals court has rejected a new
round of appeals from a death row inmate convicted of a convenience
store slaying nearly 28 years ago in Montgomery.

The Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals issued a 3-0 decision
Friday upholding the capital murder conviction and death sentence
of William "Chick" Bush.

Bush was convicted and sentenced to die for the shooting death
of convenience store clerk Larry Dominguez during a robbery on July
26, 1981. State and federal courts upheld that conviction and
sentence.

Then Bush started a new appeal, saying his attorney, Stephen
Glassroth, was ineffective at trial. Former Montgomery County
Circuit Judge Sally Greenhaw rejected that argument and the appeals
court agreed with her Friday.
