NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee last week set three new execution dates for inmates in 2022, driving the total number of executions planned this year to five.

The state had temporarily halted executions during the pandemic but is currently planning one execution every other month beginning in April.

The new dates include an Aug. 18 execution for Byron Black, 65, who has claimed in court filings that he should not be executed because he has an intellectual disability. A hearing on the disability claim scheduled for Feb. 16 was postponed.

Black was convicted in Davidson County of murdering his girlfriend Angela Clay, 29, and her daughters Latoya, 9, and Lakesha, 6, at their home on in April 1988. Prosecutors said he was in a jealous rage when he shot the three. At the time of the killings, Black was on work release while serving time for shooting and wounding Clay’s estranged husband.

The Tennessee Supreme Court set a Dec. 8 execution date for Donald Middlebrooks, 59. He has claimed in court filings he should not be executed because he is seriously mentally ill. The court set an October deadline for Middlebrooks to challenge his competency to be executed.
