Attorney General Steve Marshall is not having it with criticisms over his decision to push forward with the execution of Doyle Hamm.
He says critics are districting from the heinous crimes Doyle committee to receive the death penalty in the first place. Here is AG Marshall in his own words:
U.S. District Judge Karon O. Bowdre denied Doyle Lee Hamm’s request to block his scheduled execution Thursday. Hamm has battled lymphoma and hepatitis C and claims his veins that are in good enough shape that the state can execute him by injection this week.
Hamm is scheduled to be executed Thursday for the 1987 murder of Cullman motel clerk Patrick Cunningham. Cunningham was working the overnight shift at Anderson’s Motel when he was killed in a robbery that netted $410. Hamm confessed to the murder.
