Arkansas Supreme Court rejects appeal in 2008 Nashville dollar store shooting


LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas — The Arkansas Supreme Court says a man serving a life sentence in the 2008 shooting death of his estranged wife at a Nashville dollar store isn't entitled to a new trial.

David Camp claimed his lawyer erred by urging him to reject a plea bargain that would net him 20 years in prison. Camp went to trial and was convicted of hiring a man to shoot and kill Robin Camp on Memorial Day 2008 at the Family Dollar store where she worked.

Camp said if his lawyer had told him who prosecutors had lined up to testify against him, he would have pleaded guilty.

The Arkansas Supreme Court said Thursday, however, that Camp voluntarily rejected a plea bargain. It upheld a lower court's ruling that Camp's more-recent arguments were "self-serving."
