FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) - A Fort Wayne death row inmate has lost another appeal of to overturn his death penalty sentence.
Joseph Cororan, now 37, was convicted of the July 1997 murders of his brother, his sister's fiancee, and two other men inside a Bayer Avenue home. Cocoran was sentenced to death.
In Corcoran's latest appeal--his fourth since his conviction, his lawyers argued that previous court rulings to uphold Corcoran's death sentence are contrary to U.S. Supreme Court rulings.
Corcoran's attorneys also claim Corcoran is mentally ill, and should not be put to death.
Corcoran plans to appeal again, lawyers say.
