December 12, 1976 !'A(}K 20 HAYS DAILY NEWS Utah Killer's Fate May Be Decided Monday SALT LAKE CITY (UPD- Condemned killer Gary Gilmore, waiting on Utah's death row for a date with a firing squad, may find out Monday whether the U.S. Supreme Court will let Utah execute him. The Supreme Court is considering an appeal filed by Gilmore's mother asking for a review of Utah's death penalty statutes. Both Gilmore and the Utah state attorney general argued the court should set aside her appeal, saying she has no standing in the case. At the request of the mother, the court last week stayed Gilmore's scheduled Dec. 6 execution temporarily. Gil- more's case was on the agenda Friday of the justices' final conference before the holidays. A decision could come Monday, the day of the week the justices normally announce rulings. Meanwhile Gilmore continued a 22-day-old hunger strike protesting the refusal of doctors to let him talk to his fiancee, Nicole Barrett, who has been committed to a slate mental hospital. The condemned man sent an open letter to his mother earlier in the week, asking her to drop the appeal and let him die. He told her, "I wish to be dead. We all die...Sometimes it's right and proper." Ron Stanger, the attorney for the condemned slayer, also hopes to place a telephone call to Gilmore's mother this weekend. When the court stopped the execution, Stanger approached Utah's Fourth District Court, seeking Gilmore's release from prison on grounds the state had not carried out his death sentence within a 60-day limit required by Utah law. The 60 days were up last Monday, the day he had been scheduled to face the firing squad. Stanger said Gilmore had not changed his mind about accepting the death penalty.
