    Execution date set for man convicted in 1997 Pelham quadruple slaying

    By Ivana Hrynkiw
    AL.com

    A man convicted of a quadruple slaying in Pelham over 20 years ago is set to die next month.

    Michael Brandon Samra, 42, is set to die by lethal injection on May 16 at William C. Holman Correctional Facility in Atmore. The Alabama Supreme Court set his execution date last week.

    Samra is currently housed on death row at William E. Donaldson Correctional Facility in Jefferson County. He was convicted of capital murder in 1998 and was sentenced to death for his role in the killings of Randy Duke, his fiance Dedra Mims Hunt, and her two daughters, 6-year-old Chelisa Nicole Hunt and 7-year-old Chelsea Marie Hunt.

    The slayings happened on March 22, 1997 after, according to court records, Randy Dukes sixteen-year-old son Mark Anthony Duke came up with the murder plot because Randy Duke refused to allow his son to use a pickup truck.

    Records state Samra and Mark Duke went to the Duke home, along with two other friends, David Collums and Michael Ellison. Those two friends waited outside while Samra and Mark Duke went inside, according to an appeals court ruling.

    Randy Duke and Dedra Hunt were shot to death, court records state, while the girls throats were slashed. According to court records, Mark Duke shot and killed his father, while Samra wounded Dedra before Mark Duke shot her to death. Mark Duke slit six-year-old Chelisas throat, and Samra slit Chelseas throat as Mark Duke held her down.

    In 2015, a three-member panel of the U.S. 11th Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed a lower courts denial of Samras appeal. That appeal focused on two claims, both centering on ineffective counsel.

    Samra argued that his appellate lawyer was ineffective for not raising an argument on appeal that he was entitled to pretrial notice of the specific aggravating factor prosecutors would rely upon in pursuing the death penalty against Samra at his 1998 trial.

    He also argued his trial lawyer was ineffective for failing to investigate evidence of brain dysfunction and for introducing and emphasizing evidence of his membership in a Satanic gang called Forever Our Lord King Satan. Samra claimed the gang membership evidence strengthened the states case regarding aggravating factors.

    The appeals court rejected Samras arguments, stating Samras own confession provided overwhelming evidence. "By Samras own admission, after he assisted in killing three people, he slit the throat of a seven-year-old girl who was pleading and struggling for her life. We find no reasonable probability that, absent evidence or discussion of Samras gang involvement, the jury would not have found these murders to be as especially heinous, atrocious, or cruel as it found them, the court wrote.

    Mark Duke was also sentenced to death for the killings but is now serving a sentence of life without parole. In 2005 the Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals overturned the death penalty for Mark Duke because he was 16 at the time of the murders, and ordered he be resentenced to life imprisonment.

    In 2013, Samra lost an appeal to the Alabama Supreme Court after he argued his punishment was unfair because his more culpable co-defendant Mark Dukes sentence was reversed. In court filings, Samra claimed his constitutional rights were violated because Dukes sentence was changed.

    Samra was 19 at the time of the murders.

    Finally predicted one of these for once.
    Judicial Review isn't in the Constitution.

    Now let's all hope that the inevitable clown stay is issued earlier so SCOTUS has time to vacate it.

    If his death warrant was signed the 22nd of April, then that's not 30 days beforehand...

    The article dated 22 April said his death warrant was signed “last week” (i.e. that beginning Monday 15 April.)
    Violence and death seem to be the only answers that people understand.

    Ah, haven't read it well enough then.

    It does raise the question how a set execution date remains silent for a week.

    When Michael Eggers received his execution date last year, there was basically no media coverage until the week before his execution, and nobody on the site found out about the execution date until a month after it was set. My guess is that Alabama just has a lack of press interest in its death row.

    Not to mention, the AG requesting a date isn't even news anymore. God knows how many requests are pending at the Alabama Supreme Court. Ray's date was requested in August. And crickets. Price's in January and crickets.
