Trawick executed by lethal injection in Alabama

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama death row inmate Jack Trawick was executed by lethal injection Thursday at Holman Prison in Atmore.

Assistant Attorney General Clay Crenshaw said the 62-year-old Trawick had not filed any legal pleadings in court seeking to stop his execution as of late Wednesday. Trawick was sentenced to death for the 1992 abduction and slaying of 21-year-old college student Stephanie Gach of Birmingham.

Trawick's graphic writings and grisly drawings about his crimes were posted on the Internet. The Alabama Legislature passed a bill this year aimed at Trawick that prevents prison inmates from profiting from their crimes.
