Nathaniel Woods was executed by the State Of Alabama (read: the people in charge of the State of Alabama’s decision making). Woods was convicted in 2004 in the killings of three Birmingham police fficers. Wood’s co-defendant, Mr. Kerry M. Spencer, who fired the shots, has claimed since his arrest that Woods didn’t have a gun and ran away when the firing began. Spencer wrote a letter openly stating such.

The execution of Nate Woods took place at William C. Holman Correctional Facility in Atmore. Woods, 43, was officially pronounced dead at 9:01 p.m. Alabama Governor Kay Ivey made the following statement on the execution after previously declining to stop the execution from taking place,

“Under Alabama law, someone who helps kill a police officer is just as guilty as the person who directly commits the crime. Since 1983, Alabama has executed two individuals for being an accomplice to capital murder.

“After thorough and careful consideration of the facts surrounding the case, the initial jury’s decision, the many legal challenges and reviews, I concluded that the state of Alabama should carry out Mr. Woods’ lawfully imposed sentence this evening.

“This is not a decision that I take lightly, but I firmly believe in the rule of law and that justice must be served. My thoughts and most sincere prayers are for the families of Officers Chisholm, Owen and Bennett. May the God of all comfort be with these families as they continue to find peace and heal from this terrible crime.”

Kim Kardashian-West, who’d been advocating for Woods not to be executed, took to Twitter in order to express her disbelief in the matter.
