Death sentence reinstated for Columbus man convicted of double murder

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

The Georgia Supreme Court has reinstated the death sentences of a Columbus man convicted of a double murder.

Johnny Worsley was found guilty of killing his wife and step-daughter in 1995.

A Muscogee County Court found that Worsley's attorneys had been incompetent and ineffective, and ordered a new trial.

The Supreme Court ruled Monday morning that Worsley failed to prove those claims and reversed that decision.
