The country of Georgia on Wednesday is scheduled to perform a guy who was convicted of fatally shooting at a convenience store clerk before slipping two 12-packs of beer having an accomplice over 20 decades back.
On April 7 this season, Cromartie made a gun against his cousin and moved into a delicatessen at Thomasville, Georgia, also shot and injured shop clerk Dan Wilson from the face, court documents said.
Three days afterward, Cromartie along with his buddies Corey Clark and Thaddeus Lucas went into Junior Food Store at Thomasville beer.
Both men attempted to start the cash register but were ineffective. Cromartie subsequently took two packs of Budweiser beer and returned Clark, according to court documents.
Cromartie was detained three days after. Throughout the trial, Clark and Lucas testified. Cromartie has claimed his innocence, stating he didn’t fire the gun.
The Supreme Court of Georgia stopped Cromartie’s implementation two weeks ago to ascertain whether the implementation order was correctly registered. A circuit court judge issued a fresh implementation order on Nov. 1.
On Tuesday, Cromartie registered a stay petition with the U.S. Supreme Court to ensure the more DNA testing may be conducted from the instance.
“It’s shocking and profoundly troubling that Georgia has chosen to expend time, money and resources battling DNA testing instead of releasing the proof so it could be analyzed until Ray Cromartie is implemented,” Cromartie’s lawyer, Shawn Nolan, said in a statement.
Cromartie’s lawyers also filed a motion in federal court on Monday, asserting Lucas signed a statement stating he uttered Clark telling a friend that it was he rather than Cromartie who murdered Slysz.
Officials at the nation’s attorney general office weren’t immediately available for comment.
Cromartie is the 20th inmate in the USA and the third in Georgia to be implemented in 2019, according to the Death Penalty Information Center.
