A federal appeals panel upheld the death penalty imposed against an Albany man who brutally murdered a woman he picked up at a bar 16 years ago.

Ray Johnson was sentenced to die for the murder of 34-year-old Angela Sizemore.

She was stabbed 41 times after leaving Fundamentals nightclub with Johnson in March 1994.

Her body was found in East Albany the next day in the floorboard of her SUV

The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals yesterday affirmed a lower court's decision to deny Johnson's appeal.

He remains on death row.
