WASHINGTON  — The U.S. Supreme Court has rejected a request from prosecutors who want to re-impose a death sentence on former Black Panther Mumia Abu-Jamal, convicted of killing a white Philadelphia police officer 30 years ago.

The justices on Tuesday refused to get involved in the racially charged case. A federal appeals court ordered a new sentencing hearing for Abu-Jamal after finding that the death-penalty instructions given to the jury at Abu-Jamal’s 1982 trial were potentially misleading.

Courts have upheld Abu-Jamal’s conviction for killing Officer Daniel Faulkner over objections that African-Americans were improperly excluded from the jury.
