Tiffany Harville murder: Muslim child killer Domineque Ray executed in Alabama without imam after the court rejected his request

A Muslim child killer was executed in Alabama after the Supreme Court voted 5-4 to give his request for an imam in the execution room.

The attorneys of Domineque Ray had argued that the execution policy of the southern state favored Christian prisoners because a chaplain was allowed in the room, often kneeling beside the prisoner on the death row and on request with the prisoner's bath.

Ray, 42, was put to death by lethal injection last night at 10.12 am (4.12 pm GMT). His imam, Yusef Maisonet, allegedly watched the execution from an adjoining witness room.

The 11th US Circuit Court of Appeals yesterday agreed to continue the planned execution to consider Ray's arguments. But the state appealed against this decision to the Supreme Court, which objected to a postponement.

Ray was sentenced to death in 1999 for the murder of Tiffany Harville (15), who disappeared from her home in Selma in July 1995.
