OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals has upheld the life prison sentence of a 30-year-old man who was convicted of first-degree murder in the death of a man in Altus.
    
The five-judge court unanimously affirmed the conviction and sentence of Patrick Robinson in a decision made public Friday.
    
A jury in Jackson County found Robinson guilty in the May 2009 shooting, stabbing death and robbery of 34-year-old Hai Phan outside a southwest Lawton apartment complex.
    
Robinson acknowledged he was a drug dealer but said he did not know his four co-defendants planned to rob Phan.
    
One co-defendant pleaded guilty to murder and conspiracy in the case and is serving a life sentence. The others pleaded guilty to charges ranging from conspiracy to commit robbery to being an accessory.
