FORMER DEATH-ROW inmate Mumia Abu-Jamal has lost his last legal appeal.
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court rejected a challenge regarding forensic evidence in his racially charged case.
The onetime Black Panther was found guilty in 1982 of fatally shooting white Philadelphia police Officer Daniel Faulkner.
Abu-Jamal spent nearly 30 years on death row while pursuing numerous legal appeals. On March 26, the state Supreme Court upheld a lower court's denial of the forensics claim.
Abu-Jamal's attorney did not immediately return a request for comment on Tuesday. A spokeswoman for the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office declined to comment.
