The Arkansas Supreme Court has rejected an appeal by a man convicted of killing a Little Rock television anchorwoman.

Justices said Thursday that Curtis Vance's objections are without merit.

Vance had appealed his capital murder and rape convictions in the October 2008 death of KATV anchor Anne Pressly in her Little Rock home. Last month, the state's highest court granted Vance's request not to hold oral arguments in his appeal and instead relied on briefs that had already been filed.

Vance was sentenced to life in prison in 2009 for the rape, robbery and slaying of Pressly.

Pressly was a 26-year-old anchor on KATV's "Daybreak" program. She appeared briefly in "W," Oliver Stone's biopic on President George W. Bush.
