Murray Hooper execution set for Nov. 16

Murray Hooper is set to develop into the third man executed in Arizona in six months. He was scheduled to die by deadly injection at 10 a.m. Wednesday. 

Hooper, 76, was convicted in Maricopa County Superior Court in 1982 for his position within the 1980 New Year’s Eve murders of William Patrick Redmond, 46, and his 70-year-old mother-in-law Helen Genevieve Phelps. 

Hooper at all times insisted he was framed, however he lost his appeals and the state clemency board refused to halt or delay his execution and rejected his request for time to gather DNA proof.
