On seven different occasions the execution of convicted Nebraska murderer Carey Dean Moore was stayed by the courts. On Tuesday after 38 years on death row, he was put to death.
More on what happened at the Nebraska State Penitentiary in a minute but first the mother of a Siouxland murder victim speaks out.
Vivian Tuttle is one of about a half dozen silent protestors who stood outside the Nebraska State penitentiary in Lincoln Tuesday day as the 60 year old Moore was put to death.
It was September 26, 2002 when Vivian’s daughter, Evonne, went to cash a check at a bank in Norfolk. She was one of 5 people gunned down during the infamous bank robbery, carried out in part by three men now on death row. Vivian, who didn’t want to be on camera, is now an advocate for the death penalty and a voice for the families of lost loved ones
“I support the families of all the victims. There are 12 people on death row and there are lots and lots of victims. My daughter left a 3 year old a 5 year old and an 18 year old. They’re never going to get over this so we need to keep the death penalty so we cna have justice for those families,” said Vivian Tuttle.
Jose Sandoval one of the three men convicted in the death of Vivian’s daughter could be the next death row inmate to have an execution date set.
