Executed
Friday, May 4, 2018 (all day)

Robert Earl Butts, Jr. is scheduled to be executed on May 3, 2018 in Georgia. Lawyers have argued that Butts' trial defense was not effective, and that it failed to carry out a thorough investigation of his case and failed to present evidence, including childhood experiences of abuse and neglect, that could have helped avoid the death penalty. Federal and state courts have rejected appeals made on his behalf.
