OKLAHOMA CITY — A federal appeals court on Monday rejected the appeal of a man sentenced to death for killing two Oklahoma City women more than 25 years ago.

The U.S. 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver rejected claims by Ronald Lott, 53, who was convicted in December 2001 of raping and killing Anna Laura Fowler, 83, in September 1986 and Zelma Cutler, 93, in January 1987. His trial was delayed several times.

Lott was sentenced to death in January 2002 for both murder convictions.

Lott’s attorney did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment.
