Child Murderer on Death Row Makes Surprising Last-Minute Confession

It's hard to see such grim news as good news, but it's at least a relief: Donald Moeller, a man who was convicted of raping and killing a 9-year-old girl 20 years ago, has admitted that he deserves to be executed. "I killed. I deserve to be killed." This summer we wrote about how Tina Curl, the mother of victim Becky O'Connell, was hoping to raise enough travel funds to watch Moeller's execution.

Moeller's execution is scheduled for October 28, but it's being held up by a challenge to the constitutionality of lethal injection. And now the lawyers are saying Moeller isn't mentally competent (because he was abused as a child) to push for his own execution. But what I'm wondering is what this means to Tina, the mother who still mourns the brutal loss of her daughter.

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — 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.
