OKLAHOMA LAST MEAL
DAVID JAY BROWN
March 9, 2004
..."and you smell bad, too!"...
Last Meal: Barbecue beef with hot sauce and onion, two large orders of french fries and a vanilla malt.
The skinny: Brown was executed for the murder of his former father-in-law. Brown had claimed that he shot his former father-in-law in self defense. Brown claimed that when he went inside, the victim, who had previously shot him, attacked him and then pulled a gun and fired at him. He said he pulled his own gun and fired back - 18 times. Two of the shots hit McGuire, one in the head from close range.
More skinny: The shooting of was an ugly culmination of a stormy marriage Brown had with his the victim's daughter. Brown had been arrested and faced 150 years in prison after he went to the beauty salon where his ex-wife worked. He had a rifle and kept patrons hostage. He was arrested and charged with 16 criminal counts, including 12 counts of kidnapping. Following the arrest, Brown somehow got out of jail on bond and fled. He resurfaced a year later.
No Puppy Love: Prosecutors elicited testimony at his trial that Brown once became enraged when a puppy urinated on the floor and shot and killed the canine.
Last words and such: "All I want to know is . . . I want to tell ya'll people that the state and federal courts that works on our cases, specifically on our appeals, are nothing but a bunch of morons. Specifically, the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals and the US Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit. My records prove this. That's it. Let's go."
