TALLAHASEE, Fla. (AP) -- A drifter dubbed the "Cross-country Killer," sentenced to death in a pair of states and suspected of murder in two others, lost a second appeal Thursday in the Florida Supreme Court.

The seven justices unanimously rejected post-conviction arguments from Glen Rogers over the effectiveness of his trial and prior appeals lawyers, the constitutionality of Florida's death penalty law, alleged procedural errors and his mental competency.

Rogers, 44, was convicted of stabbing Tina Cribbs, a 34-year-old mother of two, and leaving her to die in the bathroom of his motel room after meeting her at a Tampa bar in November 1995.

The former carnival worker also was convicted of murder in California
