They also argued that a black juror was rejected because of race.
The court disagreed.
Storey is guilty of murdering a Putt-Putt assistant manager in 2006 as the victim begged for his life. The crime occurred in Fort Worth, Texas.
Dead is 28-year-old Jonas Cherry.
An accomplice received a life sentence after admitting to the crime.
Storey and Porter burst into the Hurst business on the morning of Oct. 16, 2006, and herded Cherry into an office, according to testimony during the trial. After removing surveillance tapes in the office, the robbers ordered Cherry to open a safe and fill a bag with cash.
Cherry was shot in the head and legs as he knelt and begged for his life, according to the testimony.
The robbers fled with a few hundred dollars. Immediately after the holdup and slaying, the thieves went to a Braum's Ice Cream and Dairy Store, and ordered hamburgers. They then went on a shopping spree at Cash America.
The robbers missed taking one of the surveillance tapes and that one was released to the news media. Images from the video surveillance showed a maroon two-door Ford Explorer leaving Putt-Putt.
