USA: Further information: Clemency denied, Alabama carries out execution

Jamie Mills was executed in Alabama on 30 May 2024. He was convicted in 2007 of the murder of an elderly couple in 2004 and sentenced to death after the jury voted 11-1 for the death penalty. The courts denied final appeals, including the claim that the key prosecution witness, JoAnn Mills, then facing the same capital murder charges as Jamie Mills, was offered a plea deal to avoid the death penalty in return for her testimony. The governor denied clemency. This was the second execution of the year in Alabama.
