Not in My Name

...but they're dead just the same...

#194 - Robert Wayne Sawyer - LA - 3/5/1993

I can’t even wrap my mind around this one.  He and a friend did unimaginable, horrific things to his girlfriend’s babysitter (AND sister-in-law) with his girlfriend and her children there.  She testified that he prevented her from leaving while her babysitter was being beaten, scalded, raped and set on fire.  I find that hard to believe.  Really?  You couldn’t grab your kids and get out a window?  Call the freaking police and try to stop your boyfriend from KILLING your sister in law?  Hrm.

Victim:  Frances Arwood (23)                 11/21/1979

Codefendant:  Charles W. Lane – Sentenced to Life.

He took off his cowboy boots so that the man he killed wouldn’t bleed all over them.  I wouldn’t call that a drunken “rage”.  And this is a man who spent a great deal of his adult life in prison, is suspected of being involved in at least five deaths, and wound up living in Delaware under Federal protection.  This isn’t making a lot of sense to me.

I’ve not been able to find much information about his original crime.  Only that he was serving a life sentence for a 1973 slaying when he murdered King.  There has been brief mention that the first killing was of a homeowner during a home robbery, but I’ve found no names and nothing to back that up… yet…

A lot of attention seems to be given to the fact that he was the first disabled prisoner to be put to death since the reinstatement of the death penalty in 1976.  I'm not really sure why.  He was disabled as a result of a fight in prison.  And even if he'd been disabled previously, he still killed three people.  I even understand the prison's refusal of his request to WALK those final steps himself with a walker, a walker he could use as a weapon.

I am 100% anti death penalty.  I just think that some of these doofus' out there fixating on inconsequential "issues" like our executing a murderer who happened to be in a wheelchair because he got in a prison fight ten years AFTER he killed three people during a robbery?  Does nothing to help the cause.

This twisted man should have been locked up for good LONG before he killed a child.  This just makes me sick.

He thought if he said he had an orgasm when he shot her, he'd go to a mental hospital instead of prison.  He thought wrong.  He went to the electric chair.

#186 - Cornelius Singleton - AL - 11/20/1992
notinmyname

There was no physical evidence placing him at the crime scene.  He had no connection to the victim and no motive.  Eyewitnesses said the man thought to be the killer was white with blonde hair.  Singleton was black.  How many ways can you say WTF Alabama?

Victim:  Sister Ann Hogan              11/12/1977

#185 - Jeffery Lee Griffin - TX - 11/19/1992
notinmyname

A former mental patient who claimed to be a fashion model and has sex inside a trash dumpster (then kills his “date”) then months later kills an acquaintance and a 7 year old boy.  If that isn't just the picture of mental health.  He got the death sentence for the murder of Sobotik.  Though he was charged with the murders of DeLeon and Mendoza, he was never tried for them, since he was already under sentence of death.

Victims:  Sylvia Mendoza                             7/??/1978
                David Sobotik (19)                        3/12/1979
                Horacio “Chito” DeLeon (7)        3/12/1979
