The U.S. Supreme Court has refused an appeal from a man condemned for the rape, beating and strangling of a woman he met in a Tarrant County bar nearly 10 years ago.

Forty-six-year-old Cary Kerr was convicted of the slaying of Pamela Horton. Both Kerr and the 34-year-old Horton were from Haltom City, a north Fort Worth suburb.

The high court Monday, without comment, refused to review his case. Kerr does not yet have an execution date.

Testimony showed Kerr drew attention to himself by asking police questions about Horton's body shortly after it was found near his home. Kerr told authorities he was with her at his home but when she left, she was alive.

Her purse and some of her clothing were recovered from his house.
