Ala. man executed for '93 murder of S.C. officer

Associated Press

COLUMBIA, S.C. — An Alabama man convicted of killing a police officer has been executed in South Carolina.

Thomas Treshawn Ivey was put to death by lethal injection and pronounced dead at 6:15 p.m. Friday in the state's death chamber in Columbia. The 34-year-old made no final statement.

Ivey had been awaiting execution since 1995, when he was convicted of killing Tommy Harrison. Prosecutors said Ivey shot the 38-year-old Orangeburg police sergeant in 1993 after trying to pass a bad check.

Ivey also had been sentenced to death for killing a South Carolina businessman several days before he killed Harrison.
