Texas Inmate Barney Fuller Not Challenging His Execution
Category: Без рубрики
Executions in the United States are generally accompanied by an element of uncertainty, with the condemned prisoner filing 11th hour appeals all the way to the highest court in the land and sometimes winning a reprieve at the last minute, NBC News reported.
That’s unlikely to be the case when Barney Fuller’s date with death arrives Wednesday evening.
The Texas inmate — who admitted murdering neighbors Nathan and Annette Copeland in front of their kids after a long-running dispute — ordered his lawyer not to file challenges to his lethal injection.
In a letter to his attorney last year, Fuller said he he wasn’t keeping track of the status of any proceedings.
