2007 murder conviction of Columbus man upheld

(WTVM) - A Columbus man convicted of targeting and killing Hispanics in 2007 will remain in prison.

The Georgia Supreme Court upheld the murder convictions of Raymon Baker this week.

A Muscogee County jury found Baker guilty in 2008 in the fatal shootings of 45-year-old Marcelo Rivera and 15-year-old Isaias Bartolon at the Winterfield Mobile Home Park in Columbus.

Baker's latest appeal was blocked by the Georgia Supreme Court on Monday.
