MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - An execution date has been set for a terminally ill inmate in Alabama
Al.com reports the Alabama Supreme Court on Wednesday set the date for 60-year-old Doyle Lee Hamm, who has spent 30 years on the state's Death Row.
The order says Hamm is scheduled to die on Feb. 22.
Hamm has been at Holman Prison since December 1987 after being convicted in the murder of Patrick Cunningham, an employee of Anderson's Motel in Cullman. Cunningham was killed during a robbery that apparently netted about $410.
In the course of the investigation, Hamm confessed to the murder; in exchange for being allowed to plead guilty to lesser offenses, two accomplices testified against him.
