The U.S. Supreme Court has denied the appeal of a Nebraska death row inmate whose murder case inspired the 1999 film "Boys Don't Cry."

John Lotter and a co-defendant were convicted in the 1993 slaying of Teena Brandon, a 21-year-old woman who lived briefly as a man, and two witnesses to her killing. Lotter has maintained his innocence.

In August, a three-judge panel of the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rejected Lotter's attempt to appeal his conviction, and his request for the full court to consider his appeal was denied.

Lotter then appealed to the U.S. Supreme. Last week, the nation's high court denied Lotter's request without comment
