The crimes committed by Robert Hendrix were so wild and unfathomable that he must have been in a purple haze at the time. Hendrix killed both his cousin and his cousin's wife because he feared his cousin would testify against him during a burglary trial. The cousin was shot in the head, had his throat cut, and was then beaten with the gun so many times that the trigger broke off. The cousin's wife was also shot in the head, stabbed more than 30 times, and had her throat cut as well.
Hendrix was executed tonight by the state of Florida for his crimes. For his last meal, Hendrix took advantage of Florida's generous last meal policy and ordered pork chops, biscuits with sausage gravy, and Mountain Dew. But instead of pie, which ranks as a favorite death row dessert, Hendrix rounded out his meal with German chocolate cake.
