    2 Floyd County men on death row; Foster awaiting Supreme Court decision on appeal

    Two Floyd County men are sitting on death row in the state penitentiary in Jackson for crimes committed before the start of this millennium.

    Timothy Tyrone Foster and James Randall Rogers face death by lethal injection, but the U.S. Supreme Court still hasn’t made a decision on Foster’s appeal.

    Awaiting Supreme Court decision

    Foster, 48, tortured and murdered Queen Madge White, a retired school teacher, during a burglary in 1986 and was convicted and sentenced to death in 1987.

    White was found the next morning by her sister. Her jaw was broken and there was a gash on the top of her head. Before she was strangled to death she was molested.

    Although police found the stolen items from White’s house at Foster’s home and the 18-year-old confessed to the crime, the exclusion of black jurors from the trial gave Foster an avenue for an appeal.

    In January 2015, Foster petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court over a racial bias in his murder trial’s jury selection. The hearing occurred in November 2015, but the decision on the appeal hasn’t been announced yet.

    The court must decide if the Floyd County district attorney improperly excluded black jurors from Foster’s trial.

    Then-DA Steve Lanier struck off all four black jurors before the trial. Foster’s lawyers filed an open records request to receive the prosecutors’ notes from the 1987 trial.

    Those notes show the names of each potential black juror highlighted in green and the word “black” circled next to the race question on the questionnaires.

    A hearing in Floyd County Superior Court in 1987 ruled that Lanier provided race-neutral reasons for striking the four black jurors and the Georgia Supreme Court backed that ruling.

    Murdered with a rake handle

    It was May 21, 1980, and a 19-year-old Floyd County man had just raped and murdered his 75-year-old neighbor Grace Perry.

    James Randall Rogers, now 55, is currently housed on Georgia’s death row in Jackson.

    He was first convicted and sentenced to death in 1982 on charges of murder, rape and aggravated assault for raping and then impaling Perry with a rake handle.

    However, Rogers had to be retried, convicted and sentenced in 1985 after he appealed the original conviction because the grand jury pool didn’t include enough women.

    In 2007, the Supreme Court of Georgia upheld a Floyd County jury’s 2005 finding that Rogers wasn’t mentally retarded. The U.S. Supreme Court has banned the execution of mentally retarded criminals.

    One measure of defining mental retardation is consistently scoring less than 70 on IQ tests. Rogers took six tests, with his score falling below 70 only once.

    An uninformed opponent is a dangerous opponent.

    On June 28, 2019, the United States Supreme Court ordered that Rogers' petition for a writ of certiorari and motion for leave to proceed in forma pauperis be DENIED regarding the Supreme Court of Georgia.

    I was reading about this case the other day and i sincerely hope that Rogers is executed soon.

    With regards to Mike’s last post, does the SCOTUS ruling last June mean his federal appeals are done? Or does the bit about the Supreme Court of Georgia refer to his direct appeal?

    Violence and death seem to be the only answers that people understand.

    I think he filed another appeal to GSC while waiting for his habeas petition to be ruled on
