Ky. Supreme Court denies rehearing for death row inmate

The Associated Press

The Kentucky Supreme Court has declined to reconsider the case of a death row inmate seeking to be executed for the murders of two children.

The high court on Thursday turned away a request by the court-appointed lawyers for Marco Allen Chapman to reconsider his case.

Chapman pleaded guilty in 2004 to killing 7-year-old Chelbi Sharon and 6-year-old Cody Sharon, and attacking their mother, Carolyn Marksberry, and their older sister, Courtney Sharon, in the small town of Warsaw in northern Kentucky.

Chapman told The Associated Press in an interview in May that he wanted no further appeals on his behalf and to be executed as soon as possible.

    I suppose that he has to live with it and now he will die for it. I think that he knows what he did and feels terrible about it, that at least shows some conscience on his part. One can’t say this will be a good thing, because I don’t see anything good about it from start to finish, but is there any lessons that we can learn from it? What happened and what could have happened differently before he killed them? Don’t say take a pill, I don’t know this dude, but bet you he was hyped up on something by the time he did this? That would be interesting for me to find out, is there any information available about that? Thanks

  2. GREAT move by our Supreme Court.

    One should have a CONSTITUTIONAL right to REFUSE life — and to seek death as Marco Chapman wants — barring ANY claim of INSANITY or mental infirmity.
