JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) -- A man convicted of the robbery of a Winona store in 2008 has lost an attempt to have the case overturned.
Trevarus Cijuan Daniels, 21, was arrested after authorities say he admitted to his mother he was involved in the robbery of the Campbell Hill Grocery in Winona.
The four men involved in the robbery all wore masks according to court records.
During trial, Daniels claimed he falsely implicated himself in the robbery and his statement to police was fabricated.
He was convicted by a Montgomery County jury and sentenced to 20 years in prison.
In his appeal, Daniels claimed prosecutors used challenges in a discriminatory manner to exclude woman and African-Americans from the jury.
The Mississippi Court of Appeals denied the claim in April of 2010 and refused to rehear the case on Tuesday.
