A man on federal death row for killing a South Carolina woman says he wants to drop his appeals.
Chadrick Fulks says in a letter filed in federal court this week that he respects a federal judge’s denial in August of his request for a new trial.
Fulks pleaded guilty and co-defendant Brandon Basham was convicted of kidnapping and killing 44-year-old Alice Donovan during a two-week crime spree after they escaped from a Hopkins County, Ky., jail in 2002.
Both men were sentenced to death by federal juries, and the U.S. Supreme Court has turned down their individual appeals.
Never miss a local story.
Fulks and Basham also have pleaded guilty to killing a West Virginia woman, 19-year-old Marshall University student Samantha Burns, during their spree.
