Miss. seeks to execute 3 men in 1 week in June

Mississippi could execute men on three consecutive days in June.

Attorney General Jim Hood’s office is asking the state Supreme Court to set execution dates for three men, one each on June 12, 13 and 14.

Hood’s office made the request Monday after the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear appeals of Henry Curtis Jackson Jr., Gary Carl Simmons Jr. and Jan Michael Brawner.
