Alabama Death Row Inmate Scheduled for Execution
MONTGOMERY, Ala. –
(AP) - Alabama death row inmate Jack Trawick is
scheduled to be executed by lethal injection Thursday at Holman
Prison in Atmore.
Assistant Attorney General Clay Crenshaw said the 62-year-old
Trawick had not filed any legal pleadings in court seeking to stop
his execution as of late Wednesday.
Trawick was sentenced to death for the 1992 abduction and
slaying of 21-year-old college student Stephanie Gach of
Trawick's graphic writings and grisly drawings about his crimes
were posted on the Internet. The Alabama Legislature passed a bill
this year aimed at Trawick that prevents prison inmates from
profiting from their crimes.
