Stop the Execution of Taberon Honie in Utah

Utah Governor Spencer J. Cox

Taberon Honie is scheduled to be executed in Utah on August 8, 2024 for the 1999 murder of Claudia Benn.

In seeking its first execution since 2010, Utah positions itself to become an outlier in its use of the death penalty. The majority of U.S. states are on a downward trend of executions, and increasingly, states are abolishing the practice altogether, including the southern state of Virginia, which repealed its death penalty law in 2021. Only a handful of states that has carried out an execution since 2020.

Please sign the petition asking Spencer J. Cox to do everything within his power to prevent an execution from occurring, including issuing a stay and seeking a path to clemency in the case.

From: [Your Name]

We are writing to ask that you not allow the execution of Taberon Honie on August 8, 2024 ​for the 1999 murder of Claudia Benn.

We are concerned that while the vast majority of states with capital punishment continue on a downward trend of executions, Utah seeks to go against this trend by seeking out executions.

We, the undersigned, ask that you do everything within your power to stop this execution, including issuing a stay, and seeking a path to clemency in the case.

Thank you for time and attention to this urgent and serious matter.
