Judge Holds Status Hearing In Joey Wilson’s Appeal


HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) — Wednesday, Madison County Circuit Judge Donna Pate held a status hearing for Joey Wilson’s appeal.

Wilson and Nicholas Acklin were convicted in the fatal shootings of four people on Sept. 25, 1996 and the wounding of two others at a home on University Drive.

Acklin and Wilson were both convicted and sentenced to death.  The third man involved, Corey Johnson, who did not fire a shot, was released from prison in 2011 after serving a 15-year sentence.

Wilson was not present.  A lawyer attended on his behalf.

Judge Pate said she would review motions filed in the appeal, but did not set a future court date.
