Man Convicted in Conway Kidnapping,
Slaying Asks To Drop Appeal
By TYLER PEARSON
Friday, February 3, 2006
Convicted murderer and death row inmate Chadrick Fulks is asking for his appeals to be dropped and for his execution date to be set.
Fulks also is offering to help authorities locate the body of Alice Donovan of Galivants Ferry, who he and Branden Basham are convicted of killing more than three years ago.
Fulks, 28, and Basham, 23, were convicted in U.S. District Court of kidnapping Donovan, 44, from a Wal-Mart parking lot in Conway in November 2002, then raping and killing her. Fulks received the first federal death penalty verdict in South Carolina. Basham later was sentenced to death as well.
The two also pleaded guilty in connection with the abduction and slaying of 19-year-old Marshall University student Samantha Burns of West Virginia and were sentenced to life in prison on those charges last summer.
Neither womanís body has been found, but Fulks and Basham have said both women are dead. Even though Fulks went with law enforcement officers to find Donovanís body before, he said he wants to try again.
