There has been a growing outcry over the decision by Alabama governor Kay Ivey not to grant clemency to Woods, who died by lethal injection just after 9 p.m. on Thursday at William C. Holman Correctional Facility, despite appeals and protests from his supporters that he was innocent.
Nathaniel Woods, 43, was convicted of masterminding an ambush against the officers as they tried to arrest him on drugs charges in 2004.
Prosecutors said it was Spencer who had opened fire but accused Woods of being an accomplice to the murders.
An Alabama man convicted in the 2004 shooting deaths of three police officers he did not kill is set to be executed this afternoon.
"The falsehoods are the descriptors "surrendered" and "innocent": Neither apply whatsoever to Nathaniel Woods, whose actions directly caused the deaths of three policemen and injury to another", Marshall said in a statement the day before the execution. After talking to Woods through a back door, Owen and Chisholm entered and scuffled with him before Spencer picked up a rifle and began shooting, evidence showed. "But the main point is that Nathaniel had no parts in those actions of another man, Kerry Spencer", Pamela Woods told the news outlet. These calls matter. Help us stop Nate's wrongful execution. One other officer was injured.

State attorneys said that while Woods was awaiting trial, deputies found a drawing of a bullet-riddled police vehicle in his cell and song lyrics about killing such as, "Haven't you ever heard of a killa I drop pigs like Kerry Spencer".
"We do feel really bad for what happened that day. Each had died from multiple gunshot wounds", the Alabama attorney general's office said in a request to schedule the execution date. It was very unfortunate that the shooter did what he did. He said Woods also failed to establish that he's entitled to a stay. "I pray God's mercy on them".
Shelburne, who also works for criminal justice reform in Alabama, told Newsweek that Simmons was in tears during the conversation and that more broadly, the execution had had a significant impact on the community.
"What makes it so significant and so disturbing in this case is that we now know that non-unanimous sentencing recommendations that result in death sentences are a red flag of innocence", Robert Dunham, executive director of the Death Penalty Information Center, told Oxygen.com.

He added that the "mishandling" of Woods' case could bring about "an irreversible injustice". Meek tweeted.
