A Roswell man convicted of a double murder and for shooting at police has lost his appeal.

The New Mexico Supreme Court upheld the convictions and two life sentences for David Vega.

Vega's attorney argued there wasn't enough evidence to convict him.

In 2010, Vega killed his son and his son's girlfriend before getting into a shootout with officers.

Three officers were wounded in the shootout.
