Vance said he had to make peace with his father's death, but said he has no doubt that Moody is guilty.
The Justice Department said Mr Sessions, Alabama's attorney-general when Moody was tried in state court, had determined that the federal government did not object to Moody's being in Alabama's custody "for purposes of carrying out the capital sentence".
