An East Texas woman on death row for the slaying of her developmentally disabled baby sitter and a man convicted of the killings of four people in suburban Dallas are among four condemned Texas prisoners losing appeals at the U.S. Supreme Court. The high court, without comment, refused to review the case of 50-year-old Kimberly Cargill, of Whitehouse, who was convicted in Smith County in 2012.
