(INDIANAPOLIS)(AP) - The Indiana Supreme Court has upheld an Indianapolis man's
conviction in the 2006 slayings of 3 children and four adults.

The court on Wednesday rejected the arguments of Desmond Turner's attorneys, voting 5-0 to uphold his conviction in the murders.

Turner's attorneys had argued that evidence linking bullets found at the crime scene to those found at an apartment where Turner was staying should not have been admitted in his trial. The court rejected that contention but agreed that trial testimony from a woman should not have been allowed because her statements were deemed hearsay.

Turner was convicted in November 2009 in the killings, which occurred during a home invasion robbery. He's serving a sentenced of life in prison without parole. His accomplice, James Stewart, is serving a 425-year sentence.
