No Execution Dates Set in Mississippi

Jackson, Miss.

The Mississippi Supreme Court has not set execution dates for two inmates. Attorney General Jim Hood had asked the court to set a Thursday execution for Michelle Byrom and a Friday date for Charles Ray Crawford.

The court did not act on the requests or issue any orders in the cases by the close of business Wednesday.

The inmates also have motions pending before the court as they seek permission to file additional appeals.

Byrom was convicted of capital murder and sentenced to death in 2000 in Tishomingo County in the killing of her husband, Edward "Eddie" Byrom, Sr.

Crawford was sentenced to death in 1994 for the rape and murder of college student Kristy Ray in Tippah County.
