Edward Busby More News

On April 27, 2020, the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals (CCA) granted a 60-day stay of execution to Edward Busby. Busby was scheduled to be put to death on May 6, 2020 for the 2004 robbery and murder of 77-year-old Laura Lee Crane in Fort Worth.

This is the fourth time since mid-March that the CCA has granted a 60-day stay of execution. Two other scheduled executions have been postponed due to concerns about the current public health crisis.

Tarrant County, where Busby was convicted, is one of the most active death penalty counties in Texas. It accounts for 42 executions and 75 death sentences. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for two more defendants; those trials were postponed because of the pandemic but are scheduled to resume in May.
