Hood to seek execution date for death row inmate

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) – Attorney General Jim Hood said his office will file a petition Monday with the Mississippi Supreme Court asking for a Dec. 29 execution dated for death row inmate Frederick Bell.

The U.S. Supreme Court earlier Monday declined, without comment, to hear an appeal from Bell.

Hood has earlier said Bell was close to exhausting all appeals of his 1993 capital murder conviction.

Bell and Anthony Joe Doss were convicted of killing Bert Bell, no relation, on May 6, 1991, during an armed robbery of Sparks Stop-N-Shop in Grenada County.
