    AL Supremes Uphold Conviction for Geoffrey West AL DR in 1997 Murder

    August 16, 2008

    Court nixes motions to review four Alabama death penalty cases


    The Alabama Supreme Court has turned back motions to review four Alabama death penalty cases, including the appeal of Westley Devone Harris, convicted of killing six members of a Crenshaw County family.

    The court on Friday also refused to hear the appeals of death row inmates Vernon Madison, Geoffrey Todd West and Ulysses Charles Sneed. The court issued no written opinions.

    All four condemned men have further appeals available.

    Harris was sentenced to die for the 2002 murders of six members of his girlfriend's family at their farm in Rutledge.

    Madison was convicted in the 1985 murder of a Mobile police officer. West was sentenced to die for the killing of an Etowah County store clerk in 1997. And Sneed received a death sentence for the killing of a store clerk in Decatur in 1993.
