LOUISVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) -- Two Winston County men have once again lost an attempt to have their armed robbery convictions overturned.

Quantaurus Parks, 20, and Sianquiz Willis, 18, are serving 30 years in prison for the armed robberies of three men in the parking lot of an apartment complex in November of 2010.

A jury convicted them of three counts of armed robbery.

In their appeal, Parks and Willis say the victims of the crime could not identify them until police told them their names.

In their December decision to deny the appeal, the Mississippi Court of Appeals pointed out the transcript shows all three victims identified them as they people who robbed them during their trial.

On Tuesday, judges denied a request to rehear the appeal.
