Alabama
Court Sets Execution Date for Arthur
(2008-06-30)
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - The Alabama Supreme Court has set an execution date of July 31 for Thomas Arthur.

He was convicted of capital murder and sentenced to die for the 1982 killing of Troy Wicker of Muscle Shoals.

He came within a day of execution last December before receiving a stay from the U.S. Supreme Court. Arthur was challenging Alabama's method of lethal injection at the time. The high court later upheld lethal injection in a Kentucky case.
