A nearly 8-year-old murder conviction in Augusta was upheld this week by the State Supreme Court.

Levaughn Sloans was convicted in 2010 of the 2008 murder of Antonio President.

Sloans appealed because he said there was insufficient evidence and he got ineffective council.

The Georgia Supreme Court denied those claims and affirmed his conviction.

He is currently serving a life sentence at Telfair State Prison in Helena, Georgia.
