Ricky Dubose

Ricky Allen ‘Juvie’ Dubose showed no emotions after jurors from Glynn County returned double-death sentences against him Thursday for the 2017 slayings of two Georgia corrections officers during an escape in Putnam County.

Ricky Dubose spent 11 days on death row. He died by suicide at the Georgia Diagnostic and Classification State Prison in Jackson sometime during the weekend.

His death was confirmed Sunday through law enforcement sources.

The 29-year-old Dubose was sentenced to death earlier this month for the slayings of Georgia Department of Corrections Sgt. Curtis Bernard Billue and Sgt. Christopher James Monica during an escape from a state prison transport bus on June 13, 2017, in Putnam County.

A jury of six men and six women from Glynn County deliberated nearly three hours before returning a unanimous verdict of death against the 29-year-old condemned killer in Putnam County Superior Court in Eatonton.

The double-death sentence, plus 20 years, was imposed against Dubose by Ocmulgee Judicial Circuit Superior Court Judge Alison T. Burleson.
