CCN — Justice Sonia Sotomayor dissented Monday as the U.S. Supreme Court turned down a Texas death row case involving a black man who says he was having an affair with the white woman he was convicted of killing.

A Bastrop County jury convicted Rodney Reed of capital murder in May 1998 for the murder of Stacy Stites — a 19-year-old whose body was found April 23, 1996, in the brush next to a dirt road. She had been strangled to death and marks on her neck matched her belt. Half the belt was found on the roadside.

Reed was charged with capital murder after sperm found from a swab of Stites’ vagina matched a sample
