Alabama Inmate Tommy Arthur Faces Eighth Execution Date Alabama Inmate Tommy Arthur Faces Eighth Execution Date

The U.S. Supreme Court allowed the execution to proceed shortly before 11 p.m. Thursday, with Justice Sonia Sotomayor dissenting.

Arthur was pronounced dead after an execution warrant expired.

CBS Huntsville, Alabama affiliate WHNT-TV reports Gov. Governor Kay Ivey released a statement shortly after the execution saying in part, "How to proceed when faced with a potential execution is one of the most hard decisions I will ever have to make as governor".

Three juries have found him guilty of shooting Troy Wicker to death as he slept.

Alabama executed death row inmate Tommy Arthur early Friday after a lengthy court battle that included multiple lethal injection delays.

Arthur, 75, was convicted in the 1982 murder-for-hire of Troy Wicker.

Wicker's two sons witnessed the execution but didn't speak with reporters afterward.

Arthur has maintained his innocence for the 1982 murder of his girlfriend's husband. "I've got hope in my legal team", Arthur told The Associated Press. The lawyers have argued that the opening sedative in Alabama's execution protocol - midazolam - wouldn't properly anesthetize him before he's injected with other drugs to stop his heart and lungs.

A convicted U.S. murderer who was sentenced to the death penalty in 1982 has finally been put to death after his execution was delayed seven times. In the trial, Wicker's wife said she was having sexual relations with Arthur and offered him $10,000 of a life insurance payment if he killed her husband.

Alabama "plans to do the same to Mr. Arthur", his lawyers said in an appeal rejected by the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

In Southern Europe, however, a loose monetary environment is still vital to support positive GDP growth amongst the member states. He said that medium-term trends in inflation remained "pretty favourable".

"Moreover, the Court of Criminal Appeals considered these hair samples and concluded that the presence in Wicker's vehicle of "a large amount of Negroid hair that had been forcibly removed" actually corroborated the State's case - that Mr. Arthur planted the hairs at the scene in furtherance of his scheme to make it appear as if a black man had committed the crime", Taylor wrote. The nation's high court stayed the execution of Tommy Arthur, "pending further order" from the justices, late Thursday afternoon. Since then, the southern USA state has executed 58 people, although Arthur has managed to evade his own final sentence.

"Here, the state has-with the blessing of the courts below-compounded the risks inherent in the use of midazolam by denying Arthur's counsel access to a phone through which to seek legal relief if the execution fails to proceed as planned". After her conviction, she changed her story and testified that she had discussed killing her husband with Arthur, who wore a wig and painted his face in an attempt to look like a black man.

The Death Penalty Information Center said, Arthur was the 12 person executed this year in the USA and the first in Alabama.

The Alabama Department of Corrections set execution dates for Arthur in 2001, 2003, 2007, 2008, 2012, 2014 and 2016, but all were postponed as a pro bono legal team challenged his conviction.
