Rest in peace Nathaniel Woods.

Nate Woods, 44, was executed last night despite efforts by celebrities, activists and civil rights groups. Woods was convicted for a crime he did not commit and executed, even after a his co-defendant said that he acted as a lone gunman.

Kim Kardashian, T.I. and Martin Luther King III took to social media in hopes to bring media attention to the case but sadly, the system failed Nate anyway.

Woods was convicted back in 2005 for the 2004 murder of three Birmingham, Alabama police officers. His friend and co-defendant Kerry Spencer testified that he was the won who killed the officers with no help from Woods. During his trial, prosecutors claimed Woods was the “mastermind” of the crime and that lured the officers into a house to be killed. Spencer has repeatedly said that Woods had absolutely no involvement and that ran from the scene as soon as he heard the shooting taking place. Despite there being an insurmountable amount of evidence proving Wood’s innocence a jury still voted 10-2 in favor of the death penalty.

In the weeks leading up to the execution, journalist Shaun King covered Nate’s story and urged him followers to Governor Ivey of Alabama to grant Nate a stay of execution. The Supreme Court eventually did issued a temporary stay of execution just hours before it was scheduled to happen, but then lifted it after Governor Ivey called it “unwarranted,” only moments before the execution was scheduled to take place.

Rest in peace Nate Woods and prayers to his family.
