Convicted Arkansas Killer to Be Executed in July

MAY 12, 2006 - Posted at 8:06 a.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Governor Huckabee set a July 5 execution date for a man convicted in the slaying of a Rogers woman nearly 16 years ago during a robbery at her home.

Huckabee set the execution date for 43-year-old Don William Davis, who was sentenced to death by a Benton County jury in the slaying of June Daniels in October 1990.  Daniels was shot execution style with a .44-caliber Magnum and items were stolen from her home, including jewelry.

Attorney General Mike Beebe says Davis has run out of appeals to stop his execution.

Davis once engaged in a prison hunger strike and was named by State Police in 1995 as one of the leaders of a gang of condemned killers who managed to smuggle drugs, weapons and liquor onto death row.
