RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - A North Carolina appeals court has upheld a murder conviction in the death of a Fort Bragg soldier shot outside a nightclub while celebrating his safe return after more than a year in Iraq. A three-judge panel of the state Court of Appeals on Tuesday said it found no errors in the 2012 Cumberland County trial of James Anthony Carr. Carr is serving a long prison sentence for second-degree murder for the death of Sgt. Sergio Sanchez of Alabama in 2008 and other crimes. The court said Sanchez was the designated driver for some friends when a group who had robbed other soldiers approached Sanchez. Evidence shows a man demanded Sanchez's wallet. Sanchez was shot in the neck and later died. Carr's projected prison release date is in 2035. (Copyright 2013 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.
