APPEAL DENIED-EXECUTION TO TAKE PLACE AUGUST 21, 2019

This afternoon the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals denied Larry Ray Swearingen’s request for a stay of his execution, which is scheduled to occur on August 21, 2019, and dismissed his application for a writ of habeas corpus. Swearingen was convicted of the 1998 kidnapping and murder of nineteen-year-old college student Melissa Trotter, of Willis, Texas. Swearingen’s attorneys have filed a request for a stay of execution in the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, and the Texas attorney general has requested that the stay be denied. We anticipate that the Supreme Court of the United States will be asked to review any denial of a stay of Swearingen ‘s execution.”
