William Cary Sallie is scheduled to be executed at 7 pm EST, on Tuesday, December 6, 2016, at the Georgia Diagnostic and Classification Prison in Jackson, Georgia.  Fifty-year-old William is convicted of the murder of 41-year-old John Lee Moore, on March 29, 1990, in Bacon County, Georgia.  William has spent the last 25 years on Georgia’s death row.

 

In 1985, William left home and joined the US Army.  During his time at Fort Stewart, he met and married Robin Moore.  In December of 1989, the couple got into an argument, where William struck Robin with a belt.  The argument and violence led to Robin, and their two-year-old son, moving back in with her parents, sister, and brother.

 

A short time later, William, under the pretense of visiting his son, took his son to Illinois.  In February of 1990, a court ruled that Robin could take custody of the child and return him to Georgia.  William also returned to Georgia, renting a mobil home under a fake name.  He also had a friend buy him a handgun.

 

During the early morning hours of March 29, 2009, William, dressed in camouflage, cut the phone lines to the home of John and Linda Moore, Robin’s parents.  William immediately went to the master bedroom and fired six times at John, ultimately killing him.  William fired at Linda, hitting her thumb, in the shoulder, and both thighs.  William handcuffed Linda and her 10-year-old son Justin to each other and the bed rail.  

 

He then abducted Robin and her 17-year-old sister, April, leaving his young son behind.  He took the two women to his mobile home, where he sexually assaulted them.  The two women were released the next day.  Williams was convicted of murder, aggravated assault, kidnapping with bodily injury, burglary, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.  He was sentenced to death on May 2, 1991.

 

William Sallie has attempted to argue that at least one jury member was bias, as she went through a difficult divorce, which should have made her ineligible to be a juror.  So far, the courts have refused to rehear William's case.

  

Please pray for peace and healing for the family of John Moore.  Please pray for strength for the family of William.  Please pray that if William is innocent, lacks the competency to be executed, or should not be executed for any other reason, that evidence will be provided prior to his execution.  Please pray that William may come to find peace through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, if he has not already.
