A former Dallas accountant condemned for fatally shooting his two young daughters while their mother listened helplessly on the phone was put to death Thursday night in Texas. John David Battaglia was executed for the May 2001 killings of his 9-year-old daughter, Faith, and her 6-year-old sister, Liberty. Battaglia and his wife had separated, and he shot the girls at his Dallas apartment during a scheduled visit... Asked by the warden if he had a final statement, the inmate replied: "No," then changed his mind. "Well, hi, Mary Jean," he said, looking and smiling at his ex-wife. "I'll see y'all later. Bye."

He deserved a rope.
Tortured to death. Over many weeks
Another reminder that evil exists in this world.
I still think a good dose of LSD in the first part of
the mix would do him good. Then the executioners can
all appear wearing lifelike masks of his victims and
poke him with hot irons as the last thing he sees.
It would be interesting, to say the least, ow fast his sh!t eating grin disappears when he got up close and personal with the HIGHER AUTHORIY.
Burning in hell now.
Unrepentant to the very end. That’s where I think that the injection option of a high dose of meth should be used, along with LSD. Make it painful, make his heart explode.
I hope she used both hands to give him the finger.
It took 17 years to complete his sentence. And how many millions of tax dollars arguing and re-arguing it, plus giving him all the luxuries of a nice prison? Typical.
Yes, and I bet the Higher Authority was in even more of a bad mood after this evil persons final cruel act.
When you rely on that you take the punishment out of earthly crimes. For all you know he made his peace with God just before the needle pumped the drug into his vein.
Without a doubt.
Oh boy, change the commandments into suggestions?
Souls should pay for their sins, not place their confidence in a spiritual defense attorney.
They put him to sleep.
You put your old dog and your much-loved pets to sleep.
Monsters like this should be hung. Slowly.
I was taught that if I was truly contrite upon death I would go up not down.
What I actually believe is another thing but I dont share it in open forum
Maybe, but it’s not the way to bet.
Had he done so I expect that he would have expressed his sorrow and repentance to his ex-wife instead of 'Well, hi Mary Jean', and the implied see you in Hell.
You have to confess your sins, ask for forgiveness, believe in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus and accept Him as your Lord and Savior.
Well hello, Mary Jean, goodbye heart!
