This is the first time in US history that we order an assassination order without ever charging someone. It is called unprecedented for a reason. Why you struggle with this is beyond me.Show me where a US citizen has been Tried in Absentia in a US court and sentenced to death.
The fact that the President can order an execution order without charging someone is UNPRECEDENTED. Why you are asking for a previous case is beyond me. Perhaps you need to look up the word "unprecedented".

How can you kill someone without ever bringing an indictment against them?
That is called savagery.
