The Florida Supreme Court on Thursday unanimously turned down an appeal filed by Kevin Don Foster, on death row after he was convicted in the 1996 murder of a Lee County high school band director.
An appeal by Foster was denied earlier this year based on the Florida Supreme Court determination that any death sentence not unanimous and made final before the U.S. Supreme Court 2002 ruling was not subject to resentencing, according to the state attorneys office.
The latest appeal was filed May 1 by Foster, now 41.
Foster was convicted in 1998 of the first-degree murder of Mark Schwebes, a Riverdale High School music teacher, and sentenced to death.
In April 1996, Schwebes caught Foster and other members of the group called the Lords of Chaos preparing to vandalize Riverdale High School and set the auditorium on fire.
Schwebes instructed them to leave and told them that he would report the incident to the resource officer the following day.
The group, at the direction and insistence of Foster, then planned the murder of Schwebes.
The group tracked down where Schwebes lived and went to his home. They knocked on the front door, and when Schwebes answered Foster shot him twice, once in the face and once in the pelvis.
The three other members who were present that night entered into plea agreements. Christopher Black and Derek Shields were sentenced to life in prison. Peter Magnotti was sentenced to 32 years in prison
