California’s death row, with no executions in sight, runs out of room

Sex Women who date death-row prisoners What possesses women to befriend then marry men guilty of heinous crimes and whose best hope of leaving prison is in a coffin? I even wiped some sweat from his head. How had a divorced grandmother from Somerset come to witness a scene such as this? At Sandie’s home the maximum-security world of Texas’s Polunsky Unit, where Reginald was incarcerated for eight years, seems a long way away. The walls are adorned with pictures of kittens and family portraits of her children and grandson. Pride of place goes to a photograph of Reginald in a Texas-themed frame, his gold-rimmed glasses resting on the table beside it. A girlish year-old, Sandie often breaks into laughter, or refers to hardened criminals as ‘boys’, her breezy manner somewhat at odds with her grim subject matter. Reginald Blanton was convicted of murdering his friend, year-old Carlos Garza, on 9 April at Garza’s apartment.

Former death row Scot Kenny Richey has found redemption building shelters

This list talks about ten men who are on death row for crimes that truly are unimaginable and evil. This is a rather sombre list, but we will be sure to follow it up with something a little happier.

Jul 16,  · Executed July 14, | 14 years, one month on death row Thomas Martin Thompson was convicted of forcible rape and first-degree murder with the special circumstance of murder during the commission of rape for the murder of Ginger Fleischli, 20, in Laguna Beach.

Attorney General Doug Peterson filed a motion with the Nebraska Supreme Court seeking a death warrant for Moore, 60, the longest-serving inmate on death row. The legal filing says a date of execution must be set no later than 60 days after the court issues a death warrant. The motion also states that Moore has no pending appeals or stays of execution in state or federal courts.

In recent months, Moore has declined to be named in a new round of legal challenges filed by death penalty opponents. Last year, Nebraska prison officials obtained four drugs that they intend to use for the execution. The drug combination has never been used in an execution, and state officials have refused to identify their supplier. Among other things, the ACLU has alleged that Nebraska officials misled federal authorities in obtaining the lethal injection drugs.

Over the years, he has said he took the lives of the men to steal money for drugs and because he wanted to prove that he could kill. Helgeland and Van Ness were both year-old fathers and military veterans. If the execution takes place, it will mark the first time Nebraska has used lethal injection to put an inmate to death. Moore has evaded execution multiple times during his 38 years on death row.

Lincoln attorney Alan Peterson, who has represented Moore in the past, said his former client has a request for a commutation hearing pending before the Nebraska Board of Pardons. Such a hearing would give Moore the opportunity to ask for his death sentence to be reduced, most likely to a life term.

Florida woman on death row wants new trial in double murder

My prior post looked specifically at the counties responsible for the most executions. These would be the counties where prosecutors won death sentences, not where the executions themselves took place. Contrary to the assertion from death penalty advocates that prosecutors in these counties should be commended for “doing their job,” I noted these counties also tend to have troubling records of misconduct and exonerations. This week, I want to look at the other list in the DPIC study — the counties that have sent the most people to death row.

This is a different list, as these counties tend to be in states that aren’t nearly as eager to execute as, say, Texas or Florida.

Iran is second to China in the number of prisoners executed in recent years — killing people in alone, mostly for drug offenses, and 10, people since The abundance of cheap, addictive drugs coming from nearby Afghanistan is a challenge for authorities.

According to Amnesty International , about 90 percent of those on death row are first-time offenders aged between years old.

Davis has said the state should not execute him, not because he is innocent but because he is no longer the same person. Johnson was convicted in two trials but has maintained his innocence. The Arkansas state supreme court recently rejected his request that his execution be halted, pending the results of DNA testing of new evidence from the scene of the crime.
