First Alabama Execution in Two Years Scheduled


By Alabama News Network

For the first time in nearly two years, a prisoner in Alabama is facing execution.
30-year-old Andrew Lackey is scheduled to die by lethal injection next Thursday at Holman Prison in Atmore.
Lackey received the death penalty for beating and shooting 80-year old Charles Newman to death on Halloween Night 2005 during a robbery in Limestone County.
Court records show Lackey has asked the state to set his execution date and has not taken any action to stop it.
