More than 1,000 persons have been sent to North Carolina's death row since the state assumed responsibility for executing criminals in 1910. The prison system houses male death row inmates at Central Prison and female death row inmates at the North Carolina Correctional Institution for Women. Both prisons are located in Raleigh.
At Central Prison, the men are housed in cellblocks of Unit III. Two correctional officers in a control center watch the inmates at all times. Each cell block is divided into eight pods with 24 single cells - 12 cells on each level. The cells open into a dayroom area that has a television at one end, stainless steel tables in the middle and showers at the other end. Each cell has a bed, a lavatory, commode, and a wall-mounted writing table.
Inmates on death row spend nearly all their time in either their cells or the adjacent dayroom. They may stay in their dayroom from 7 a.m. until 11 p.m. While in the dayroom, they may watch television.
Death row inmates may be assigned incentive wage jobs in the canteen or clothes house, or may work as barbers or janitors within their housing areas. They are required to keep their cells and dayrooms clean. Inmates are allowed at least one hour per day for exercise and showers. Two days a week, officers escort death row inmates in groups from each cellblock pod to outdoor exercise areas, weather permitting, where the inmates can play basketball, walk or jog. Officers also escort the death row inmates by cellblock to the dining halls for each meal.
Death Watch Area at Central PrisonDeath row inmates may receive one visit a week with a maximum of two visitors. In the visiting booths, visitors may see and talk with inmates, but physical contact is not possible. Inmates may participate in a one-hour Christian worship service each Sunday, or Islamic worship services for one hour each Friday. A Bible study class is also conducted by the prison's chaplain for 90 minutes each Tuesday morning.
If a death row inmate violates prison regulations, he may be placed in a segregation cellblock outside of the death row area. He must eat his meals in his cell and is separated from other death row inmates for his daily hour of exercise and shower.
Conditions are similar for female inmates on death row. The women are housed in a cellblock of the maximum security building at the North Carolina Correctional Institution for Women. Each of the single cells has a bed, lavatory and commode. The seven cells are side by side down a corridor. At the front of the cellblock is a dayroom with a television, table and chairs. This is where the women eat their meals. This room also serves as the visiting area, and all visits are supervised by correctional staff. As a group, the women inmates are given at least an hour daily for exercise and showers. Volunteers provide Sunday worship services on death row. Chaplains are available for counseling.
When a death row inmate exhausts all appeals, the attorney general directs the secretary of the Department of Public Safety to set an execution date. That inmate - male or female - is moved into the death watch area of Central Prison three to seven days prior to the execution date. The death watch area is adjacent to the execution chamber and is located in the prison's custody control building. The inmate moves all personal belongings from the death row cell to one of the four cells in the death watch area.Cell in Death Watch area
Each cell has a bed, lavatory, commode and a wall-mounted writing table. The cells are side by side and open into a dayroom where there is a table, a television and shower. With the exception of 15 minutes allowed for a shower, the inmate spends the entire day in the cell. A sergeant and a correctional officer are stationed just outside the cell in the dayroom 24 hours a day.
The inmate may receive visits from his attorney, chaplains, psychologists and others authorized by prison administrators and may receive non-contact family visits in the prison's regular visiting area. Contact visits may be allowed at the warden's discretion in the days immediately preceding execution. An inmate on death watch is not allowed contact with other inmates. The inmate remains in the death watch area until receiving a stay or until escorted to the execution chamber. Executions are carried out in accordance with the state's execution protocol.

The tragic news broke on November 28, 2018, when Lumberton police said they think a body discovered by searchers the day before is the missing teen. We believe we have found the body of 13-year-old Hania Aguilar This is the outcome we all feared It hurts. Our work is not over. We will not stop, we will not stop, until we find the person or persons responsible, and we bring them to justice, Lumberton Police Chief Michael McNeill said in a news conference.
We are absolutely devastated, McNeill said. I wish we had a different outcome for Hanias family, for the community that she lived in and for the hundreds of law enforcement officers and searchers who put everything, everything they had into finding her and bringing her back alive. He said that authorities are awaiting a dental test comparison for final verification but preliminary tests point to the body being Hania. Please continue to pray for Hanias family and for each other.
There was an Amber Alert for the teen. A GoFundMe account has been set up to help Hanias family.
On Tuesday, November 27, 2018, the FBIs Charlotte office announced on Twitter that a body was found in an area being searched by agents looking for Hania. That body was found in water, and the cause of death has not yet been released.
PING FOR JUSTICE
I’ll be back in a few. Have to tend to some things before the “winter storm that has doomed us All” gets here.
This Case REALLY PISSES Me OFF. The perp needs to EXIT Society IMO.
The alleged Death Penalty is no longer a deterrent, they need to execute one a week then maybe some perp will take notice, these people are being cuddled.
I thought there was a positive ID and the perp was in jail on another charge. His last name was something like McLellan.
I’d like to see how much the do-gooder defense lawyers are paid after the initial conviction. I’ll bet it runs in the millions.
Prayers up, may God bless
Im not really interested in wheter it deters or not. I think it does deter some but thats not why I am for it.
For anyone, male or female, old or young, that murders.
What is the tie-in between the lead posting about death row, and the comment regarding the murdered girl?

Anyone here read Jack London’s “The Assassination Bureau”?
How about Bruno’s plot in “Strangers on a Train”?
Coddled not cuddled.
I think, given what these (dare we call them bad names that will hurt their feelings) should be getting, there’s little difference between coddling and cuddling.
Is there room at the Death Row Inn for Comey & Mueller?
