A man convicted of killing three convenience store employees in Columbia has been sentenced to death, again. The sentence for Ernest Lee Johnson is the same as it was the first two times. His first two convictions were thrown out by the state supreme court on different grounds. Johnson has been convicted of beating the three people to death with a claw hammer. Johnson claims he was high on crack cocaine at the time and used most of the money he stole to buy more of the drug.
