The Scheduled Execution of Stephen West

The state of Tennessee plans to execute Stephen West at 10:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 9, at Riverbend Maximum Security Institution.

On March 18, 1986, Stephen West, 23, and Ronnie Martin, 17, were arrested for the murders of Wanda and Sheila Romines. West was ultimately sentenced to death in 1987 for the murders though his co-defendant confessed to being the actual killer. However, because Martin was a juvenile at the time, he was ineligible to receive the death penalty so he received two life sentences instead.

Read the case summary here and see  a sample letter  that you can use to email Governor Bredesen at to ask for clemency for West. You can also call the Governor’s office at 615.741.2001 or fax at 615.532.9711. 

If the execution moves forward, TADP will hold vigils across the state to remember all those individuals whose lives have been lost to murder as well as the families who have been traumatized. And, as we remember, we also gather to resist the continued use of violence as a means to address these tragedies.

Because there is a new execution time, 10:00 p.m., plans have changed around the TADP vigil in Nashville. Because of the earlier time frame, Nashville TADP will hold only one event on the eve of the execution.  We will gather on Tuesday, November 9, in the field just past the entrance to Riverbend at 7:30 p.m and will hold an interfaith Service of Remembrance and Resistance at 8:00 p.m. in this location. Following the service, we will wait together until 9:30 when we will begin our candlelight vigil until the execution occurs or a stay is granted.

In Knoxville, there will be 2 services. The first is a candlelight vigil of Remembrance and Resistance on the UTK campus, outside the 2nd floor of Hodges Library, to be held on Sunday, November 7th from 6-8 pm. A second service in Knoxville will be on Monday, November 8th at 7 pm at the Church of the Savior off Weisgarber road.

In Memphis, a vigil will be held on November 9 at 7:00 at Immaculate Conception Cathedral.

There is still time to let the Governor know that you would like this execution to be stopped.  Act now.
