Governor Phil Bryant won’t stop the execution of a butcher sentenced to death for dismembering a man over a drug debt.

Forty-nine-year-old Gary Carl Simmons Jr. was convicted of the August 1996 killing of Jeffery Wolfe, whose body parts were found in a bayou.

In a statement Wednesday, Bryant said: “In light of Mr. Simmons having been convicted by a jury of his peers and after a review of the facts associated with his case, I have decided not to grant clemency and will not delay the execution.”
