It's rare to see a man put to death for stealing cattle these days, but William Rousan was executed by the state of Missouri this morning for just that. Of course, he did kill a few people at the same time, too.
Rousan, along with his son and his brother, murdered a married couple who lived on a farm and then stole two cows, a VCR, some jewelry, a saddle, and other items.
Rousan's obvious fondness for good beef followed him all the way to the grave. For his last meal, Rousan asked for a bacon cheeseburger, onion rings, and a slice of pecan pie.
