The Supreme Court appears likely to rule for an inmate on Texas' death row who was denied money to investigate his history of mental illness and other claims that could spare him from being executed. The case the justices heard Monday involves an immigrant from Honduras who was sentenced to death for strangling a woman in her home in Houston.

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.
