JACKSON — Robert Wayne Holsey was put to death by lethal injection Tuesday night for the murder of a deputy in 1995.

The execution was carried out at 10:51 PM at the Georgia Diagnostic and Classification Center in Jackson.  The case had been appealed to the US Supreme Court, but they denied his request for a stay of execution before 10:00 that night.

Holsey murdered a Baldwin County Sheriff’s Deputy, Will Robinson, in 1995 related to a robbery of a Milledgeville convenience store while trying to flee.
