The Pine Bluff Commercial reports 45-year-old Jack Harold Jones is seeking clemency from the State's parole board. Jones was sentenced to death for rape and murder of a woman in 1995 and is scheduled to be executed next month. He had already received a life sentence for the rape and murder of another woman in 1991. Jones says he has been "dealing with" his "feelings of guilt" every day and claims he was under the influence of drugs at the time of commission of the second offense. See story here.
