Jason Reeves’ Death Sentence Upheld
Jason Reeves, the man convicted in the murder of Mary Jean Thigpen, has once again been condemned to death for his crime. The ruling was handed down by Judge Mike Canaday on Friday after a hearing on Reeves' fitness to understand the judgement against him.
After being convicted of the crime which took place in 2001, Reeves was found guilty and it was in 2012 that Reeves was sentenced to death for the deplorable crime. Following the sentence, Reeves' attorneys requested a review of Reeves' mental faculties.
That hearing took place back in March and the ruling from Judge Canaday is that Reeves is not mentally disabled and therefore the death penalty can be carried out.
