The Ohio Supreme Court has upheld the death sentence of Duane Short, who was convicted of killing his estranged wife and her friend in 2004.

The court rejected Short’s argument that he was improperly denied the right to present mitigating evidence.

Short was convicted of shooting Donnie Sweeney in her yard in Huber Heights, then going inside and shooting his wife, Rhonda Short.
