A Louisiana man is facing charges of murdering his wife and son and is facing a death sentence for killing his wife.
The Louisiana Court of Appeals on Monday upheld the conviction of Robert Thomas, 54, of Larkspur.
A jury found Thomas guilty of murder in the July 2017 killing of his wife, 56-year-old Brenda Thomas, and son, 17-year, Michael Thomas, both of Baton Rouge.
The two were found dead in their Baton Rouge home.
Thomas pleaded not guilty and said he had acted out of jealousy.
