The execution of a man who brutally raped then murdered a 15-year-old Riverside girl in 1980 is expected to move forward after the state appeals court on Monday overturned an injunction preventing executions by lethal injection in California, according to the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office.
Convicted killer Albert Greenwood Brown is set to die at 12:01 a.m., Sept. 29 in California’s new $853,000 compound inside San Quentin State Prison by lethal injection.
?It is time for Susan Jordan?s loved ones to finally get the justice they?ve waited 30 years to see,? Riverside County District Attorney Rod Pacheco said. ?This is a murderer who never claimed innocence and who has now exhausted all his appellate rights in an extremely horrific case. There is no reason for his execution to be further delayed.?
Brown had been paroled from state prison just four months before killing Jordan.
He had already been convicted of the 1977 rape of a 14-year-old girl.
In 1982, Brown was convicted in Riverside County of Jordan?s rape and murder and ultimately sentenced to death.
All of his state and federal appeals have now been exhausted.
A United States District Court judge has indicated he will rule by Friday on motions by Brown?s attorney for a delay in the execution.
