LETTER: Limit appeals for convicted murderers

South Carolina must have a lot of money to waste. I say this because the state keeps giving a convicted murderer new hearings to have his conviction overturned. The officials say it’s his right.
Thomas Stewart was convicted and sentenced to life without the chance of parole for killing my niece on New Year’s Day in 2010.
What rights did my niece have? He murdered her in front of her two sons, who were very young at the time. They are still trying to heal, but it is hard because he keeps going before a judge to make his petitions for a new trial.
