LINCOLN, Nebraska — The Nebraska Supreme Court has upheld the conviction and life sentences given to a western Nebraska man for the stabbing deaths of two people in his home.

Dominick Dubray was sentenced in 2012 to two life terms, plus another 30 to 40 years for weapons convictions, for the February 2012 stabbing deaths of 22-year-old Catalina Chavez, of Alliance, and 42-year-old Mike Loutzenhiser, of Scottsbluff.

In his appeal, the 28-year-old Dubray said the trial court wrong allowed the jury to see autopsy photographs, that prosecutors engaged in misconduct and that his trial attorney was ineffective for failing to object to a jury instruction, among other things.

On Friday, the high court found Dubray's arguments were either without merit or didn't constitute reversible error.
