The Ohio Supreme Court unanimously upheld Ashford Thompson's aggravated murder conviction for the 2008 slaying of a Twinsburg, Ohio, police officer, but split 4-3 in deciding that the death penalty was appropriate, reports the Akron Beacon Journal.

Thompson's death sentence, according to an entry filed with the high court's 90-page decision, is scheduled to be carried out April 5, 2017.

Thompson, who turned 30 while on death row last month, shot Officer Joshua Miktarian four times in the head, at close range, after Thompson had been stopped for playing loud music in his car in the early hours of July 13, 2008.
