A judge has signed an order scheduling the execution of a former high school football star from Taylor County for the week beginning April 19.
Daniel Greene was sentenced to death for the 1991 killing of 19-year-old Bernard Walker, who was trying to help a convenience store clerk who had been robbed and stabbed by Greene. The clerk survived.
Greene, a 6-foot 5-inch, 350-pound former high school football standout, was tried in Clayton County in 1992 because of pretrial publicity. He was convicted of other crimes in Houston and Macon counties.
After killing Walker, Greene later drove to the home of a Macon County couple who had previously employed him as a farm laborer. Greene burst into their home, got their car keys and then stabbed Willie and Donice Montgomery multiple times. The couple survived.
Greene then drove to another convenience store in Warner Robins and pulled a knife on the store attendant, who gave Greene money from the cash register. Greene stabbed her in the back of the shoulder before fleeing. He was later arrested at a relative’s home and confessed to the crimes in a videotaped interview, saying he needed money for crack cocaine, according to court records.
The Georgia Department of Corrections is soon expected to pick a date and time for Greene’s execution.
