Death sentence of 6-time killer upheld in Kentucky

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Supreme Court has upheld a death sentence for a six-time convicted killer in a 1991 shooting.

The high court on Thursday rejected multiple claims by 57-year-old Michael Dale St. Clair that a Bullitt County judge erred in handling his resentencing in 2012.

St. Clair was convicted of killing distillery worker Francis "Frank" Brady of Bardstown in 1991.

St. Clair and another inmate escaped from an Oklahoma prison where he was serving four life sentences for murder and went on a cross-country crime spree that ended shortly after Brady's death.

St. Clair has also been convicted of kidnapping 22-year-old Timothy Keeling from the Denver area and killing him in the New Mexico desert.

The justices are still weighing a conviction and death sentence for kidnapping Brady in Hardin County.
