The Supreme Court Friday also upheld decisions in two Topeka murder cases.
The first involved Carl Baker, convicted of murder and kidnapping in the June 2006 death of homeless advocate David Owen.
Baker had appealed his life sentence on the murder charge and 19-years for kidnapping.
Owens body was found near the Kansas River near a campsite used by homeless people.
Three others were also convicted in Owen's death.
The court also upheld a life sentence for Gregory Walls.
He was convicted in the 1993 murder of Timothy Walls at a central Topeka apartment complex.
Gregory Walls argued he didn't get a speedy trial.
