ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Ray Johnson was denied his motion for an 'extraordinary appeal' this morning by Superior Court Judge Willie Lockette.

Johnson was convicted two decades ago for the brutal murder of Angela Sizemore in 1994.

Johnson's lawyers wanted to present what they called new evidence to overturn his conviction and death sentence.

They say they will continue to appeal on his behalf.
