The conviction of Billy Dale Green was affirmed by the Arkansas Supreme Court on March 3rd, which denied Green’s request for charges to be dropped against him based on a claim of misconduct by the prosecutor in the case.

Billy Dale Green and his son Charles “Chad” Green were convicted in the killings of a Dalton couple and their two children in 1998 over a dispute involving 10 marijuana plants. Billy Dale Green was tried and convicted largely on the basis of testimony from his son, who claimed he saw his father commit the murders.
