Skip to comments.NY woman to watch daughter's killer die in SD

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.

This has to be a mistake. What is the lib media doing running a story about a death penalty case where the victim’s mother is written with sympathy instead of the killer. Oh, that’s right. He’s white. The media is usually okay with executing whites.
crud.... if it would have been a few days earlier we would have had two sob’s erased in one month... better luck next month
Sounds reasonable to me.
If it were up to me you could.
thanks for the post, i missed that thread.
i don’t give a rat’s if it’s murder of so-and-so or cop or whoever.. or rape..
they need to die.. send them to the Lord. He will sort it out.
i do know i carry ... ALL the time. and so do my now adult kids thank God i live in SD
So sad to see this mother go thru all this with her daughter being murdered....but kudos to her for pursuing the execution of her daughter’s murderer
So many people who are victims of crime get weak when it comes to the punishment of the perp. So often these days “Criminal Rights” seems to trump justice
Every capital felon should be executed. An executed felon commits zero crimes...the rate of recidivism is ZERO.
This mother is doing a good thing for her daughter, and, for society.
I would want to watch, too. Only I’d demand that the killer be able to clearly see me grinning at him like a hyena as he dies.
UPDATE: The piece of sh!+ is dead and gone forever. Flush the toilet and forget he ever existed:
It truly is a good thing for the little girl’s family to get the closure they deserve.
What they didn’t deserve was having to wait 22 years for closure.
Thanks for the update LH. The population of Hell just increased by 1.
**He should have been dead 6 months after his sentence.**
Thirty days after!
Better yet, the state should sell tickets to the ceremony and use the funds to battle pedophilia.
Thanks for posting this, South40.
After 22 years, his execution will really be a deterrent, won’t it?
Because the sentence against an evil deed is not executed quickly, therefore the hearts of the sons of men among them are given fully to do evil.
I don't care if it's a deterrent or not. It was his punishment for raping and stabbing a 9-year-old girl.
