Eddyville, KY – Attorneys are seeking a stay of execution for a confessed child killer who has volunteered to be put to death. The Kentucky Supreme Court cleared the way last week for Marco Allen Chapman to become the first death row inmate executed in the state in nearly 10 years. The execution date is set for November 21 at Eddyville State Penitentiary. Chapman dismissed his public defenders in 2004, entered a guilty plea and asked to be put to death. The public defenders are arguing Chapman shouldn't be executed until appeals are exhausted. That case is pending before the state Supreme Court.
