    Harold Wayne Nichols - Tennessee Death Row

    Facts of the Crime:

    Nichols was sentenced to death on May 12, 1990 for the January 30, 1988 killing of 21-year-old Karen Pulley. He broke into Pulley's Chattanooga home, raped her, and hit her in the head with a board at least four times. The victim suffered skull fractures and massive brain injuries and died the following day. In addition to the death sentence, Nichols received a 60-year sentence for aggravated rape and a 15-year sentence for first-degree burglary, both in connection with the attack on Pulley.

    Inmate loses federal appeal

    A federal appeals court has denied a petition from a death row inmate who claimed mistakes by police, his lawyers and the judge led to his conviction.

    The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati posted its ruling Thursday in the appeal of Harold Wayne Nichols. He was convicted and sentenced to death in the 1988 rape and murder of 21-year-old Karen Elise Pulley of Chattanooga. Nichols— originally from Cleveland, Tenn. — was also convicted in a series of 11 other rapes or attempted rapes in the Chattanooga area.

    The Tennessee Supreme Court upheld the death sentence of Nichols in 1994.
