Arizona high court affirms conviction in 2008 murder case

PHOENIX -- The Arizona Supreme Court has upheld the conviction and sentence of a man on death row for a Peoria triple homicide.

A jury found Robert "Bobby" Hernandez guilty of three counts of first-degree murder with aggravating factors.

At the time of the April 2008 fatal shootings, Hernandez was on parole after serving an eight-year prison sentence for armed robbery.

The state's high court heard oral arguments in the case after Hernandez claimed, among other things, there was sufficient evidence to support his convictions for premeditated murder.

Court documents show Hernandez broke into the home of a Peoria couple looking for his former girlfriend, who's the mother of his three children.

One of the four people shot survived and identified Hernandez to police.

The Supreme Court affirmed his conviction and sentence in an opinion released Friday.
