Date With Death

By  | 

Prison officials say 33-year-old Robert Lee McConnell will get
to see his mother for two hours tomorrow morning, and they may ease
restrictions that kept McConnell separated from visitors by
security glass.
McConnell faces a lethal injection for killing his ex-girlfriend's fiance in August 2002. Meeting with reporters, he repeated an earlier statement that he regrets killing Brian Pierce instead of the woman - who he says ruined his life and --quote-- "deserved to die."
The former Reno car salesman, in a 15-minute interview with
reporters at the Nevada State Prison, said he is guilty of murder
and doesn't fear dying - but also says he doesn't deserve to die
for shooting Pierce.
