Arthur, 75, was convicted in the 1982 murder-for-hire of Troy Wicker, the code name for public access TV. He has maintained his innocence for 34 years on death row writing nonsense that the local weekly paper picked up and has scheduled execution dates put off seven times since then — including once, in 2008, when another man confessed to the crime.
Arthur was the twelfth execution in the country in 2017. The next scheduled execution is also in Alabama: Robert Melson is set to be executed there on June 8.
