Speaking words of contrition, Scotty Morrow became the first Georgian to be executed this year on Thursday May, 2nd. Scotty had been sentenced to die for the murders of Barbara Young and Tonya Woods in 1994. Mr. Morrow expressed remorse, and apologized to the Young and Woods family as his final act.
We are grateful for all who prayed for Scotty, his family and friends, and the family and friends of Barbara Young and Tonya Woods. Many Catholics also participated at various prayer vigils held Thursday night around the state.
Please continue to pray that our state will uphold the value and dignity of all human life, even for those guilty of violent crimes.
