DALLAS, Texas (AP) – The state’s highest appeals court has upheld the conviction of a Dallas street gang member sent to death row for the fatal shootings of two brothers during a March 2009 home robbery.

Attorneys for Roderick Harris argued to the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals there were 40 errors at his trial two years ago for the slayings of Alfredo and Carlos Gallardo. Among all claims rejected Wednesday were improper jury selection, that the slaying wasn’t intentional and shouldn’t have been considered capital murder, and that a gang expert improperly testified about Harris’ gang tattoos.

Witnesses said Harris entered the Gallardos’ east Dallas home, demanding wallets and valuables. The brothers were shot trying to defend their relatives. Harris fled with $2 and a ring.
