Without extensive comment, the Tennessee Supreme Court has set November 17, 2015, as the execution date for 49-year-old convicted multiple murderer Nicholas Todd “Nicky” Sutton.No Death Row inmate has been executed in Tennessee since 2009.Sutton has been on Tennessee’s Death Row since 1980 and has twice been convicted of capital murder. The first death sentence came in connection with the death of Knoxville contractor Charles P. Almon III, 46, in late September or early October 1979. Investigators allege that Almon’s body was wrapped in a sheet, chained to a concrete block, then thrown into the once-state-owned rock quarry off Golf Course Road in Cocke County.The defendant was sentenced to death by electrocution in connection with Almon’s killing, but the method was changed to lethal injection when Tennessee’s law changed to require lethal injection as Tennessee’s sole method of execution.For more details, please see the weekend edition of the Newport Plain Talk.
