NY woman to watch daughter's killer die in SD
MSN (AP) ^ | 10/30/2012

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — Becky O'Connell left her South Dakota home on the simplest of errands: to go to the store for sugar so she could make lemonade.

When the 9-year-old didn't return, panic gripped Sioux Falls, prompting parents to round up their children and keep them indoors. But within hours, the mystery was solved — with a gruesome outcome.

Becky had been kidnapped, raped and stabbed to death, left to die on an earthen berm near the Big Sioux River that rainy night in May 1990.

Becky's killer, 60-year-old Donald Moeller, is set to die by lethal injection Tuesday night at the South Dakota State Penitentiary.

Her mother, Tina Curl, has been steadfast in her wish to watch him die, raising funds to cover the expenses to make the 1,400-mile trip from her home in New York state to return to Sioux Falls for the execution.

Why did it take 14 years to execute this monster.

He should have been dead 6 months after his sentence.

Who could be so sick or wicked as to grab a random little girl and misuse her and then kill her as casually as he’d kill a varmint. Lots of bikers, truckers, hunters, that kind of guy sport beards like that, and it doesn’t usually mean anything evil. This was evil, inhuman.

I don’t imagine his years in jail have been a picnic but you are right, it shouldn’t have taken so long.

Justice finally delivered, but 22 years later...that is not justice. That is torment for the victims family so that those in charge of the state did not have to face their responsibilities to deliver justice. Don’t run for office or accept an appointment unless you are willing to administer effectively. It is a lonely and solemn responsibility, you must be firm in your convictions when you accept it. The administrators(Judges, Lawyers, Politicians) in this case failed the victim and society. Shame on them. There is no justice without the death penalty, and there is no justice unless it is administered swiftly.

I have a beard and I ride a bike, but I could never be as evil as this POS.

All the levels of appeals possible today got in there incrementally after something went wrong in another case and it was strongly shown that the authorities really did nab the wrong person. Those persons, now exonerated, frequently go around giving talks to anti death penalty advocacy groups. I see no way modern society would tolerate eliding any of the steps without some reason to believe the accuracy of the process is not lost thereby.

"I don't want to die," he said, assuring a federal judge that he didn't simply have a death wish after so many years on death row. "I want to pay for what I owe."

Paying now, buddy. I'm a Sioux Falls native. You lived around 20 years too long.

What the hell does a beard have to do with it. I have a beard. Many have beards. Abe Lincoln had a beard. That is a sick statement in the face of this piece of evil shit.
