Kentucky’s Supreme Court Chief Justice said a convict’s request to be put to death played no part in the decision to uphold the death sentence.
The State Supreme Court has unanimously upheld the death sentence of Marco Allen Chapman. Chapman said he wants to be put to death. He filed an affidavit with the high court in May 2007, saying he wants to be put to death for the murders of two children and a brutal attack on two other people in Northern Kentucky.
Chapman pleaded guilty to the attacks in 2004.
