TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — The Supreme Court is rejecting the appeal of a man who killed a Dixie County deputy in a shootout after murdering his sister and another woman.
John Kalisz was appealing the death sentences he received for the murder of his sister, Kathryn Donovan, and her office manager, Deborah Tillotson. The Supreme Court rejected the 59-year-old man's appeal Thursday.
Kalisz killed the women and wounded two others in January 2010. He later killed Dixie County sheriff's Capt. Chad Reed during the shootout. He was sentenced to life after pleading guilty to Reed's death.
