JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Convicted murderer Curtis Giovanni Flowers has lost another appeal. This appeal accused the prosecutor of using racial bias in his jury strikes for Flowers' latest conviction.

Flowers is under a death sentence, convicted of capital murder.

Flowers was convicted in the July 1996 murders of four workers at  a Winona furniture store. He was convicted four times, but the Mississippi Supreme Court overturned the first three. Two of his trials ended in mistrials.

Prosecutors painted Flowers as a disgruntled employee who had been fired from his job at the store.

Flowers was convicted of capital murder in the gunshot deaths of 59-year-old Bertha Tardy, owner of Tardy Furniture, and three employees: 45-year-old Carmen Rigby, 42-year-old Robert Golden, and 16-year-old Derrick "BoBo" Stewart.
