Thomas Ivey - South Carolina Death Row - Execution set for May 8, 2009


Victims: Sgt. Tommy Harrison and Robert Montgomery

The Crime: Convicted of killing Orangeburg Sgt. Tommy Harrison and Columbia businessman Robert Montgomery

Two years after a murderous crime spree, Thomas Ivey was found guilty of the 1993 shooting deaths of a popular Orangeburg police officer and a Columbia businessman.

In January 1995, the Union Springs, Ala., man was convicted of murdering Orangeburg Department of Public Safety Sgt. Tommy Harrison, 38. He was sentenced to death for the Jan. 15, 1993 shooting.

According to testimony from the death-penalty phase in the Harrison case, Ivey and Vincent L. Neumon Sr., then 24, of Columbia, kidnapped Robert Montgomery and stole his truck two days before Harrison was killed.

After taking the vehicle, they drove Montgomery to North, where Ivey took him out of the vehicle and shot him twice at close range -- once in the back of the head and once in the chest.

Along with a Columbia woman, the two men then drove to Orangeburg's Prince of Orange Mall.

Harrison arrived at the mall about 5:30 p.m. and found the trio. Harrison was attempting to question Ivey concerning a bad check being passed at Belk when the Alabama prison escapee pulled a .357-caliber Smith and Wesson Magnum and began firing.

Harrison was shot point-blank six times.

Montgomery's body was found outside of North on Jan. 16, 1993; his vehicle was located abandoned in Fairfield County.

In addition to Ivey, Circuit Court Judge David F. McInnis sentenced Neumon to the maximum sentences on both charges, life in prison for the murder and 30 years for the armed robbery.

The woman, Patricia A. Perkins, 30, of Columbia, was charged with forgery in the case.
