Hearing ends in case of 1944 execution of South Carolina teen
John MonkSUMTER, S.C. Emotions ran high as two days of state and defense testimony wrapped up Wednesday, putting a close to an unusual hearing about whether a 70-year-old jury verdict should be voided in the case of an executed 14-year-old boy.
Circuit Judge Carmen Mullen made no decision in the case of long dead George Stinney Jr. of Clarendon County. The black seventh-grader was strapped into the state's electric chair in June 1944 after a two-hour trial in which a jury of 12 white men found him guilty of murder in the bludgeoning deaths of two young white girls.
Mullen gave 3rd Circuit Solicitor Chip Finney 10 days to submit a written brief in the case and defense lawyers 10 more days after that to reply to Finney's brief.
