  • Percy Hutton, who was scheduled to be executed on June 22, 2022.  The new date of execution has been moved to June 18, 2025. 
  • Douglas Coley, who was scheduled to be executed on July 20, 2022.  The new date of execution has been moved to September 24, 2025. 
  • Cedric Carter, who was scheduled to be executed on August 24, 2022.  The new date of execution has been moved to August 27, 2025.
