South Dakota Man Executed for Child's Murder
Kidnapped, raped, and murdered 9-year-old girl in 1990
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Tina Curl was so eager to see her 9-year-old daughter's killer executed Tuesday night that she couldn't even take her seat in the witness room.
"I was right up to the glass," she told The Associated Press after the execution. "I wanted to see it up close."
Donald Moeller, 60, received a lethal injection at the South Dakota State Penitentiary in Sioux Falls on Tuesday night as punishment for the 1990 kidnap, rape and killing of young Becky O'Connell.
