Stephen Hugueley found dead days after Tennessee requests execution date πŸ’₯πŸ‘©πŸ’₯

A man on Tennessee’s death row died Friday, three days after the state filed for a new execution date in his case.

This week, he once again pleaded with the courts to be let out of solitary confinement, where he’d been for 18 years.

Stephen L. Hugueley, 53, was pronounced dead at 2:35 a.m. Friday at the Riverbend Maximum Security Institution where he was housed, a release from the Tennessee Department of Correction indicated.

He died of apparent natural causes, according to the agency.

“Years of this abuse took a tremendous physical and mental toll upon Stephen. That Stephen withstood this treatment for so long is a testament to the strength of his spirit,” his attorney, Federal Public Defender Amy Harwell, wrote Friday.
