Execution Date Set for Carman Deck

Death Penalty Syringe

The state of Missouri has set May 3rd as the execution date for Carman Deck who was convicted of killing James and Zelma Long in 1997. Mr. Deck had three separate sentencing proceedings before getting the ultimate punishment.  Unfortunately, at the final hearing he was unable to bring witnesses to court to speak in his defense. Had the witnesses appeared at this third hearing, they could have attested to the excessive abuse and neglect Mr. Deck experienced as a child. Mr. Deck was abandoned as a child and faced extreme hunger, forcing him to steal food for his siblings. He also endured physical abuse by his mother and stepmother. Mr. Deck lived in twenty-three foster home placements before the age of eighteen.

The Catholic Church opposes the death penalty because it disregards the sanctity and dignity of human life. Please contact Governor Mike Parson at (573) 751-3222 or by clicking here and urge clemency for Mr. Deck.
