LITTLE ROCK, AR - Execution dates have been requested by the state for four Arkansas death row inmates.

The Arkansas Attorney General's Office has hand delivered the letters requesting the execution dates to the office of Governor Mike Beebe.

In those letters, Dustin McDaniel writes he is making the requests because there is currently no stay of execution in place regarding the convictions and sentences of these inmates, or the current lethal injection protocol.

The death row inmates are among several others who have been fighting the state's execution law in the courts in recent years.

The inmates are:
  • Don William Davis - convicted of the 1990 murder of Jane Daniel in Rogers. She was shot execution-style with a .44 Magnum at her Twin Lakes Estates home after Davis broke in and burglarized the home.
  • Jack Harold Jones - sentenced to death for raping and killing Mary Phillips in Bald Knob and attempting to kill her 11-year-old daughter Lacey back in 1995.
  • Jason Ferrell McGehee - convicted of capital murder and kidnapping in the 1997 beating and strangulation death of 15-year-old John Melbourne in Boone County and sentenced to death by lethal injection in 1998.
  • Bruce Earl Ward - convicted of capital murder in Pulaski County in 1997 for the 1989 strangulation killing of 18-year-old store clerk Rebecca Doss.
There has not been an execution in Arkansas since 2005.
