    Kevin B. Burns - Tennessee Death Row




    Facts of the Crime:

    Sentenced to death in two 1992 murders: Tracey Johnson died at the scene, whereas Damond Dawson, who suffered five gunshots to his arm, buttocks, chest and hip was alive when police arrived but died after being transported to the hospital. Eric Thomas, who sustained gunshots to his chest and stomach, survived and made a photo identification of Kevin Burns two days after the incident. Thomas testified that Burns and the others had "opened fire" after robbing him and his friends of their jewelry and money.

    Burns was sentenced to death on November 27, 1995.

    Case files: New appeals for Tennessee death row inmates

    By Stacey Barchenger
    The Tennessean

    Lawyers have filed motions in Tennessee courts on behalf of condemned inmates that present a new, and perhaps unexpected, course of attack on the death penalty: Citing the U.S. Supreme Court ruling legalizing same-sex marriage nationwide. The motions seek to re-open the condemned inmates' cases.

    They argue that the Supreme Court justices in the 2015 same-sex marriage case, known as Obergefell, ruled that courts cannot infringe on fundamental rights, including the right to life. The inmates say that to impose a death sentence infringes on that right.

    Many of those motions have been denied by judges, though a few are still pending.

    Here are some of those cases:

    Kevin Burns, Shelby County, motion denied:
    Burns was given the death sentence in the 1992 murder of Damond Dawson, 17, and a life sentence for killing Tracey Johnson, 23. The two were murdered as they sat in a car in Dawson's driveway after being robbed of money and jewelry.
