Supreme Court denies review for convicted killer John Balentine

The United States Supreme Court has denied a review for a convicted killer in Amarillo.

The Supreme Court Monday denied a Certiorari review for John Balentine, which means his stay of execution has been terminated.

Potter county is now seeking another execution date for Balentine.

In 1998, he killed three people in Amarillo and was put on Texas death row the following year.

In June of last year, he was granted a stay of execution.
