SANTA FE, N.M.—The state Supreme Court has upheld the murder conviction of a Taos man who was re-tried after the court overturned his initial conviction for the shooting death of a teenager.

In the latest appeal by Orlando Torrez, the court concluded there was enough evidence to support his convictions of felony murder, shooting at a dwelling and evidence tampering.

The court also ruled last month ( there was no violation of Torrez's right against double jeopardy.

Torrez was sentenced to life in prison for the death of 19-year-old Danica Concha. She was hit by a bullet from a gunfight that broke out at a 2003 Halloween party in Taos. Another woman was wounded.

The court ordered a new trial in 2009 because testimony about gangs was wrongly allowed as evidence.
