TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- The Kansas Supreme Court has upheld the convictions of a man serving life in prison with no chance of parole for the murder of an El Dorado teenager who led a secret life as an Internet porn model.

The justices unanimously rejected an appeal for a new trial from Israel G. Mireles.

Mireles was convicted of rape and capital murder in the November 2007 stabbing and strangulation of Emily Sander. The 18-year-old Butler County Community College student was killed in an El Dorado motel room that Mireles had been renting while working in the south-central Kansas community.

It was later revealed that Sander also was known on the Internet as model Zoey Zane.

The court rejected Mireles' claim that grisly autopsy photos shouldn't have been admitted as evidence.
