Execution Date Scheduled For Johnson County Man

LITTLE ROCK (KFSM) -- Governor Asa Hutchinson scheduled the execution date on Friday (Aug. 25) for a Johnson County man that was convicted of murder in 1992.

The execution date for inmate Jack Gordon Greene has been scheduled for Nov. 9, 2017.

Attorney General Leslie Rutledge sought Hutchinson's approval for an execution because Greene has exhausted his appeals and there is currently no stay of execution in place for Greene's conviction, sentence, or the current lethal-injection protocol.

In the early 1990s, Greene went to North Carolina, kidnapped his niece and then killed his brother, Turner "Tommy" Greene. His niece, 16 at the time, survived.

Greene later killed 69-year-old Sidney Jethro Burnett at his Knoxville home in Johnson County.

Greene received a life sentence in North Carolina for his brother's murder and niece's kidnapping. In 1992, a jury sentenced him for the brutal slaying of Sidney Jethro Burnett.

Arkansas board to hear convicted killer's bid for clemency month before execution date

LITTLE ROCK -- The Arkansas Parole Board says it will hear a convicted murderer's bid for clemency just more than a month before he's scheduled to be executed.

The board said Friday it will hold a hearing Oct. 4 on Jack Greene's application for executive clemency. Greene was convicted of killing Sidney Jethro Burnett in 1991 after Burnett and his wife accused Greene of arson.

Gov. Asa Hutchinson last month scheduled Greene's execution for Nov. 9 after the state said it had a new supply of midazolam, one of three drugs the state uses for lethal injection.

In April, the state scheduled eight executions before its previous supply of midazolam expired. Four prisoners were put to death and four other men were spared by the courts.

Parole board recommends against clemency for Arkansas inmate set to die in November

The Arkansas Parole Board on Thursday voted unanimously to not recommend clemency for a condemned murderer whose execution is set for November.

The panel voted 6-0, stating that Jack Gordon Greene's case for clemency was without merit after hearings Wednesday at the Varner Unit and in Little Rock.

The final decision regarding whether Greene will be granted mercy lies with Gov. Asa Hutchinson.

Greene, 62, was convicted and sentenced to death in the 1991 killing of Sidney Burnett, a retired minister, while on the run after killing Greene's brother in North Carolina.

During the hearing Wednesday, Greene told the Parole Board that he wanted his sentence commuted to life only if the state followed an earlier agreement in which he would be extradited to his home state of North Carolina.

The condemned murderer's federal court-appointed attorneys argued that Greene is unfit to be executed because psychosomatic delusions prevent him from understanding the reality of his punishment.  :P  :P  :P  :P

Greene is scheduled to die by lethal injection Nov. 9.
