Execution date for Troy Kell

Troy Kell is an inmate on death row from Nevada who, on July 6, 1994 killed an inmate, Lonnie Blackmon, at the Utah Corrections Department's Gunnison facility. Once in prison, Kell became a white supremacist leader.Prior to the attack on Blackmon, Kell had been involved in race-related altercations with several black inmates, including Blackmon.The murder was captured on the prison security closed-circuit TV camera.

Due to security concerns, the state won the right to hold Kell's trial in a courtroom within the Utah State Prison facility. Convicted of aggravated murder, the state pushed for and secured a death penalty verdict from the jury. In 2003, he came within a month of execution by firing squad, but eventually chose to file an appeal. As of May 2008, Troy Kell remains on death row, as his appeals process continues.

Troy Kell was originally imprisoned in the state of Nevada for the murder of 21-year old James Cotton Kelly. In 1986, Kell, at the age of 18, was asked by a 15 1/2 year-old female companion, Sandy Shaw, to "do something." The victim drove into the desert with Ms. Shaw, Mr. Kell and a third young man, where he was subsequently shot and killed by Kell. The murder was dubbed the "Show and Tell Murder" by Las Vegas media, because defendant Shaw returned to the scene of the crime with her friends, to see the corpse. Arrested, tried and convicted Sandy Shaw served 21 years and was released on parole in December 2007. Kell was sentenced to life in prison without parole. He was transferred to Utah because of violent altercations between himself and other inmates and gang affiliations.

The Utah Attorney General's Office has requested an execution date for a man who was convicted of stabbing a fellow prisoner.

The office filed a motion last week in 6th District Court asking Judge David Mower to lift a stay of execution for Troy Michael Kell and issue an execution warrant. The office says Kell has no pending challenge of his death sentence.

Kell appealed, but Mower dismissed it. The Supreme Court upheld the decision in September.

  6. Wow, Kell knew what he did, and is ready to meet the reaper as he has relayed in his own words. Bottom line is don’t get caught doing the crime if you’re not prepared to take the consequences. Just know that is you see this any other way, well, You’re wrong. Q.E.D. Bottom line, is unless he escapes, he's going for the big dirt nap...
