Convicted drug dealer Corey Johnson will now be executed as the Supreme Court denies his final appeals.
Johnson, 52, was sentenced to death for the murders of seven people in Richmond in 1992 while he was a member of the deadly Newtowne crack cocaine gang.
Here are the two orders denying the appeals. As is typical in last-minute death penalty litigation, the orders are brief, unsigned, and unexplained. pic.twitter.com/bBpv9x07Ph— SCOTUSblog (@SCOTUSblog) January 15, 2021
