High Court Refuses Appeal Of Salvadoran On Texas Death Row
HOUSTON — The U.S. Supreme Court has refused to review the appeal of a Salvadoran man on Texas death row for the slayings of two store clerks in Houston 15 years ago. The high court offered no explanation for its decision Monday in the case of 45-year-old Gilmar Guevara.
Guevara was condemned for fatally shooting 48-year-old Tae Youk and 21-year-old Gerardo Yaxon during an attempted robbery in 2000.
Youk was from South Korea.
Yaxon was from Guatemala.
No money was taken from their store.
Guevara also confessed to killing an apartment security guard hours after the double shooting to steal the guard’s gun.
