FORSYTH, Ga. – The execution of condemned murderer William Sallie scheduled for 7 p.m. on Tuesday, December 6, 2016, at Georgia Diagnostic and Classification Prison in Jackson was carried out on Tuesday, December 6, 2016, at 10:05 p.m. in accordance with state law. Sallie accepted a final prayer and recorded a final statement. Sallie was sentenced to death in 2001 for the murder of John Moore.
