Kid Killer Set To Die Tuesday

September 22nd, 2008 by flanews

The state is set to execute Richard Henyard for the 1993 murders of two young girls. Henyard was also found guilty of raping the girls mother and leaving her for dead. His appeal to the State Supreme Court in September was denied. Henyard will become the 2nd person executed in the state since Florida resumed Capital Punishment this July. The Florida Catholic Conference is asking the state to spare Henyard. Conference spokeswoman Shelia Hopkins said Henyard shouldnt pay for his crimes with his life.

We believe this was a heinous crime and we feel sorry for Dorothy and the loss of her children, but however society can be protected by Henyard being in prison the rest of his life, said Hopkins.

Henyards execution is set for Tuesday. Florida has more than 380 inmates on Death Row.
