Kenneth Williams


Age: 38

convicted murderer who was serving a life sentence for the 1998 death of University of Arkansas-Pine Bluff cheerleader Dominique Hurd when he escaped by hiding in a hog slop-filled tank of a garbage truck and fatally shot former deputy warden Cecil Boren at his farm near the Cummins Unit maximum-security state prison in Lincoln County, Arkansas before he stole a pickup truck and crashed into a water-delivery truck killing the driver Michael Greenwood during a high-speed police chase in southern Missouri in 1999, who had became an ordained minister while on Arkansas' death row for nearly 17 years and was one of eight prisoners who were given death warrants scheduled in the nation's first and rare double execution since 2000 after the state ended a nearly 12-year hiatus on administering capital punishment in a controversial series of executions carried out in the United States for more than half a century when the state's supply of a drug used in the lethal injection process expired in over an 11-day period this month, in which the last double execution of Arkansas occurred in 1999.
