PHOENIX -- The new court ruling upholds an Arizona death-row inmate's second death sentence for the murder of a woman who lived in the same Chandler apartment complex.

The Arizona Supreme Court's unanimous ruling Friday upholds the death sentence for Fabio Evelio Gomez in the 1999 killing of Joan Morane.

Police found her bloody and badly beaten body in a trash container at the complex.

Police looked in the container after Morane was reported missing and officers saw blood stains in Gomez's apartment across a landing from the victim's apartment.

The state high court overturned Gomez's first death sentence because he was made to wear shackles in view of sentencing jurors.
