Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich announced Wednesday that death row inmate Murray Hooper had been executed by the state of Arizona for the 1980 murder of Pat Redmond and Helen Phelps.
“The people of Arizona made it clear once again that those who commit heinous crimes in our state will be held accountable,” said Brnovich. “We must never forget the victims or cease to pursue what justice demands.”
Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich (R) filed a notice at the Arizona Supreme Court Tuesday, declaring the state’s intent to seek an execution warrant for death row inmate Murray Hooper.
“Our state recognizes that those who commit the most heinous crimes deserve the ultimate punishment,” Brnovich said. “It is the appropriate response, and we must faithfully carry out the court-ordered sentences for the victims, their families, and our communities.”
