Hanging Justice

Record #:
When Thomas F. Covington was hanged by the Catawba County sheriff in 1896, execution was still a county matter, although his death sentence could have been commuted by the Governor or the State Supreme Court. Sheriff T. L. Bandy imposed the death sentence on Covington for the murder of store owner James Brown.
