Eagle Eats Chicken

Despite two last-minute stays issued by the US Supreme Court, Ronald Smith was executed late last night by the state of Alabama for a murder he committed in 1994. During a convenience store robbery, Smith pistol-whipped a store clerk then shot him through the head when the man wouldn’t open the cash register.

Smith, a former Eagle Scout, dined on a three-piece fried chicken meal with French fries prior to his lethal injection.

Oops, I Did It Again

Thanks to a sharp-eyed fan of the blog, I've just realized that I neglected to mark the execution of Steven Spears (no relation to Britney) last month. My apologies, dear readers!

On November 16, convicted killer Steven Spears was executed by the state of Georgia. Spears earned his death sentence for killing an ex-girlfriend because he believed she was seeing another man. Spears came up with four different plans for killing his former love interest, including electrocution, bludgeoning, shooting, and strangling, with strangling chosen as the method of choice. (It's ironic that a man named Spears never considered stabbing his victim with a sharp, pointed weapon) Spears hid in a closet at his victim's house for several hours, then crept out once his former girlfriend was asleep. He choked the woman into unconsciousness then put a plastic bag over her head and wrapped it with duct tape.

Spears never fought his death sentence in court and never showed remorse for his crime. "If I had to do it again, I'd do it," he remarked.

For his last meal, Spears ordered only a large meat pizza.

Lay Down Sallie

William Sallie was executed by the state of Georgia tonight for the murder of his father-in-law in 1990. Sallie barged into the rural home where his estranged wife and child were staying, shot his wife's parents, and abducted his wife and her sister. Sallie's mother-in-law survived the attack, but her husband was pronounced dead at the scene.

For his last meal, William Sallie requested a pizza with sausage and pepperoni, buffalo chicken wings, and a large soda.
