Supreme Court rejects Edgar Ray Killen's rehearing request

Edgar Ray Killen, convicted in 2005 for the murders of civil rights workers Michael Schwerner, James Chaney, and Andrew Goodman, will not receive another hearing.

The Supreme Court denied the request Monday without comment.

Killen, 88, was convicted of manslaughter, and is serving a 60-year sentence.
