Supreme Court allows Alabama to execute 83-year-old inmate

Supreme Court allows Alabama to execute 83-year-old inmate

Two different mail bombs have been later intercepted and defused, together with one at an NAACP workplace in Jacksonville, Fla.

Walter Leroy Moody, 83, convicted in 1996 within the 1989 bombing loss of life of a federal choose, was scheduled to be executed Thursday.

Alabama on Thursday executed an 83-year-old man convicted of a deadly 1989 serial bombing spree, making him the oldest known person put to death in the modern era of US capital punishment.

On Wednesday, the US 11 Circuit Court of Appeals denied Moody's request for a stay of execution, AL.com reported. The execution occurred Thursday evening, after a temporary delay because of a pending U.S. Supreme Court ruling on Moody's final appeal.

His attorneys haven't raised his age in authorized filings, however have argued in a clemency petition to Alabama's governor that his age and well being would complicate the deadly injection process.

Moody has argued that his federal sentence of a number of life sentences couldn't be interrupted by the state of Alabama. Authorities stated that those bombs have been created to produce investigators think the crimes have been racially inspired.

Prosecutors mentioned Moody, who had attended regulation college, had a grudge in opposition to the authorized system as a result of the 11th Circuit refused to overturn a 1972 pipe-bomb possession conviction that prevented him from training regulation. Alabama later indicted him on capital murder charges and his trial began in the state in 1996, court records showed.

There have been seven executions this year in the United States.

Bob Vance, son of the assassinated judge who is also a judge himself, said there "wasn't any real good reason" for Moody's targeting of his father.

Friends said the senior Vance quietly fought for the rights of underprivileged as both a jurist and a politician. Moody not only committed capital murder, he also sought to interrupt the flow of justice. The younger Vance said he put the letter in the trash.

The younger Vance, who does not plan to witness the execution, said he had to make peace with his father's death, but said he has no doubt that Moody is guilty. Moody, he added, fits the definition of a psychopath.

Although it has not been an issue in Moody's last-minute appeals, age and poor health were major factors in a botched execution in Alabama earlier this year when the state tried to put to death Doyle Hamm, 61, who had terminal cancer and severely compromised veins. Moody was convicted of killing Judge Robert S. Vance.

"The point to emphasize is my Dad was personally opposed to the death penalty but always made clear that his personal feelings had to give way to the law", Vance said.
