The U.S. Supreme Court has denied the petition for a new trial for Mississippi death row inmate Caleb Corrothers, who received the death penalty for the 2009 murders of Taylor and Frank Clark in Lafayette County.

Corrothers, now 33, claims that an eyewitness mistakenly identified him following the crime. He offered the same story with the Supreme Court last year, but the argument was also rejected.

In 2011, Corrothers was convicted on two counts of capital murder for the deaths of Frank Clark and his son, Taylor Clark, in their Oxford-area home on July 11, 2009. The dispute was drug-related.

Corrothers is back on death row with no execution date set.
