Around the Region

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KOLR) — The man convicted of kidnapping and killing a 10-year-old Springfield girl six years ago will not have his appeal heard by the United States Supreme Court.

A jury convicted Craig Wood of killing Hailey Owens, but jurors could not decide whether Wood should receive a death sentence, or life in prison.

A judge later sentenced Wood to death and Missouri’s supreme court upheld that sentence.

The US Supreme Court declined to hear his appeal today.
