(KYTX) - The Supreme Court refused today to weigh in on Rickey Lynn Lewis' case.  The 50- year old death row inmate is set to die on April 9th.

Lewis was convicted of the 1990 shooting death of George Ray Newman during a burglary at a Garden Valley home.  The woman was also sexually assaulted and tied up.  Lewis was later caught with items from the home.

Lewis has been on death row for nearly 2 decades.

Lewis' attorney has claimed Lewis is mentally retarded and not eligible for execution.
