Convicted Murderer seeks stay
A quadruple murderer from Talladega who is
dying of cancer has asked courts to block his execution later this
month, arguing that lethal chemicals that would be used to kill him
could interact with his medication and cause undue pain.
53 year old Daniel Lee Siebert, , has filed
papers asking federal and state courts to block his execution in
part because of the possible drug reaction. He also is challenging
lethal injection as cruel and unusual punishment even without the
alleged pain from the chemical mix. A federal judge gave the state
until the close of business Friday to reveal whether it plans to go
through with the execution of Siebert. Gov. Bob Riley's staff told
the attorney general's office to inform the court he was undecided
on whether to grant a stay. Court documents indicate Siebert has
been suffering since at least June and possibly earlier from
pancreatic cancer, which can spread quickly and cause death within
weeks. He also has hepatitis C.
Siebert refused treatment for the cancer and is
receiving only pain medication. The inmate has signed papers to
waive resuscitation or other efforts to prolong his life as his
condition worsens. Siebert's execution is set for Oct. 25. According
to his attorney, He will die in a matter of months no matter what
happens at the end of this month,". Sherri Weathers, a 24-year-old
student at the state's school for the deaf in Talladega, was
strangled along with her two sons, 4-year-old Joey and 5-year-old
Chad, on Feb. 19, 1986. Siebert and Weathers had been dating.
Siebert, an art teacher before his arrest, was
also convicted of capital murder in the death of Linda Jar man, a
neighbor of Weathers, who was killed the same night.
Man killed in Etowah Accident
A 31 year old St. Petersburg Florida man was
killed Sunday afternoon when his 2002 Honda motorcycle collided head
on with an 18 wheeler. State troopers say that the accident
occurred on U.S. 278 in Walnut Grove in Etowah County. Randall
Jason Weaver was pronounced dead on the scene. Troopers said that
Weavers motorcycle crossed the center line in a curve and struck a
1985 Ken worth head on. The driver of the Ken worth, 79 year old
Herbert Snider of Eastaboga was not injured in the accident.
police have charged a man in connection with the shooting death of a
woman last week. It happened at a home on East Side Drive in south
Gadsden last Wednesday morning. Captain Troy Higdon says 31-year-old
Antonym Jones is charged with the murder of 23-year-old Carolyn
Childers. Captain Higdon says Childers was pronounced dead at the

ConAgra Foods Inc. recalled all its Banquet pot
pies and store brand varieties last week after the products were
linked to a nationwide salmonella outbreak. The company included
beef pot pies in the recall after initially saying only the chicken
and turkey pot pies should not be eaten. ConAgra issued a consumer
alert and asked stores nationwide to stop selling the poultry pot
pies. ConAgra spokeswoman Stephanie Childs said the decision to
recall the pies wasn't based on new information, but an abundance of
caution. She said she knew of no indication of a link between cases
of salmonella and the beef pot pies, but the company wanted to be
careful as it collects information. The pot pies made by ConAgra
have been linked to at least 165 cases of salmonella in 31 states.
The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said at least
30 people have been hospitalized as part of the ongoing outbreak,
but so far no deaths have been linked to the pot pies. The company
and federal officials warned customers not to eat the pot pies and
to throw them away, and ConAgra is offering refunds. The store brand
versions are sold under the names of Albertson's, Hill Country Fare,
Food Lion, Great Value (sold at Wal-Mart stores), Kirkwood, Kroger,
Meier and Western Family.
