...She was able to identify Amador only after repeated interviews and a hypnosis session with investigators....

Last Meal: Amador had no final meal request.

The skinny: Amador, was executed for killing a taxicab driver for $100.

More skinny: Around 3:30 a.m. a taxi driver and his female ride-along passenger picked up Amador and his 16-year-old cousin, Sara Rivas, who directed the man to a desolate area in the town of Poteet.

When the cab stopped, and with no warning or provocation, Amador fatally shot the driver with a .380 caliber handgun. Soon after, on Amador’s command, Rivas shot the woman in the head with a .25 caliber handgun, and both victims were dragged out of the taxi and dumped face-down on the gravel driveway. The woman would survive her wounds.

After the woman's pockets were searched and emptied, Amador and Rivas drove off in the taxi, which was later found abandoned in the median of a highway in San Antonio.

A passing motorist witnessed Amador and Rivas walk away from the vehicle.

An anonymous “Crimestoppers” caller implicated Amador. On March 16, 1994, The female victim informed police that a friend told her that the two attackers were named John Joe Amador and Sara Rivas.

On March 30, 1994, she identified Amador in a photo lineup. The woman testified she survived because she pretended to be dead. Under questioning at Amador's trial, she acknowledged she had up to 15 beers and a wine cooler in the preceding hours. She was able to identify Amador only after repeated interviews and a hypnosis session with investigators.

An arrest warrant was issued for Amador, who had since gone to California.

Amador all but confessed when he identified to police the caliber of the guns used in the shootings, described how he “would have” committed the murder, asserted that he “will take [his] death sentence” if prosecutors could “prove it in court,” and warned his girlfriend by letter not to testify.

During the punishment phase of his murder trial, Amador threatened to kill the judge and prosecutors.

At the time, Amador also was on parole from California for helping kill his stepfather, who allegedly had sexually and physically abused him.

A "Changed" Man: In a recent interview, Amador said his marriage to Linda Amador and his introduction to the novel, "The Alchemist," ignited the sea of change that during his last few years in prison inspired him to paint, write several spirituals and a play about his life.

Linda Amador, who married Amador in 2004 and never missed a weekly visit, said he was a "blessing" to her life.

Last words and such: As he lay on the gurney, Amador looked toward his wife and whispered, "God forgive them for they know not what they do. ... Give them peace, God, for people seeking revenge towards me." Linda Amador pressed her face against the glass pane separating them. "I love you, Chiquita. Peace. Freedom. I'm ready. As the drugs began taking effect, he uttered, "Wow."

The victim's 19-year-old son, who directed an expletive toward the dead man as he walked out of the chamber, said he was disappointed and angered by Amador's serene manner. "He looked too happy," said the son, who was 6 when his father was killed. "I think they should have burned him or done something else."

Factoids: Amador was the...

38th murderer executed in U.S. in 2007
1095th murderer executed in U.S. since 1976
23rd murderer executed in Texas in 2007

..."I figured I'd be found not guilty. If anything, it'd be armed robbery. It didn't work out."...

Last Meal: Mosley had no final meal request.

The skinny: Mosley, a former high school honors student was executed for the killing of a woman who was one of four people gunned down in a holdup at an East Texas bar.

More skinny: Wearing ski masks and brandishing handguns, Mosley and his uncle Ray Don Mosley, entered Katies’ Lounge in Kilgore as the night waitress was closing up for the evening.

Ray Don, the first to burst through the door, approached the woman and demanded the money. As sheslid a box containing money toward Ray Don, he shot her twice.

DaRoyce Mosley shot the four customers who were at the lounge, All four customers died while the waitress’ injuries left her permanently paralyzed from the chest down.

Despite her shock-induced state, the waitress still managed to call 9-1-1.

Both Mosleys and a juvenile went to Christopher “Kaboo” Smith’s home after the crime. DaRoyce Mosley divided the money evenly between himself, Ray Don, the juvenile, and Kaboo, with each receiving a total of seventy-seven dollars.

The next day, Mosley bought a new car and picked up his brother, Kaboo and the juvenile. Police pulled Mosley over and arrested the juvenile. At the time, the police were unaware of Mosley’s involvement in the robbery and killings at the lounge. Nonetheless, the police asked all the occupants of the car if they would voluntarily come to the police station, and everyone agreed.

At the police station, Mosley stated that he had no involvement in the robbery and murders. Later that evening, however, Mosley was arrested based on information the police received from Smith. When informed he was under arrest, [Mosley] cried out, “Oh what have I done. I've ruined my life. I'm going to spend the rest of my life in jail.” Mosley confessed that he shot the four people at Katies’ Lounge and that Ray Don shot the lone victim to survive the robbery.

Ray Don Mosley, who had a prior history of theft, trespassing, and interfering with police apprehension, and was on parole at the time of the murders, pleaded guilty to murder and was sentenced to life in prison. Marcus Smith, another accomplice, was given a two-year sentence.

Mosley did not have a prior criminal record before this offense was committed.

Later: Mosley said he wrongly confessed to the slayings.

Mosley said he turned down a plea deal for three life terms. "I figured I'd be found not guilty," he said. "If anything, it'd be armed robbery. It didn't work out."

Last words and such: In a brief final statement, Mosley said he appreciated the love and support he had received over the years. "I will see you when you get there," he told witnesses, including his mother and sister. "Keep your heads up. To all the fellows on the row, the same thing. Keep your head up and continue to fight." He expressed love again and as the lethal drugs began flowing, he remarked, "I can taste it."

Factoids: Mosley was the...

37th murderer executed in U.S. in 2007
1094th murderer executed in U.S. since 1976
22nd murderer executed in Texas in 2007
401st murderer executed in Texas since 1976

The lethal drugs were not administered to DaRoyce Mosley until the U.S. Supreme Court resolved a late appeal, about five hours after the scheduled time for the execution. He was executed about an hour before his death warrant would have expired.

...The victim was a veteran of the Omaha Beach landing during World War II...

Last Meal: Williams had a final meal request of hot dogs, a garden salad with French dressing, and orange juice.

The skinny: Williams was executed for shooting a World War Two veteran to death during a 1988 robbery.

More skinny: The victim was on his way home from work and stopped his vehicle, a red 1984 Chevrolet pickup truck with a camper, because of mechanical problems.

Williams and two men were traveling south in a vehicle stolen the day before. They stopped and confronted the man, leading him to a nearby wooded area and shot him once in the left side of the head with a .22 caliber pistol which had been in the trunk of the stolen vehicle.

The victim’s body was left at the site of the shooting, and his money and vehicle were taken.

Later that same morning, several witnesses identified Williams as the driver of a red ‘camper truck’ which was parked at the Smithfield housing project. The gun used in the shooting was recovered from his girlfriend's home where Williams was arrested.

The then-28-year-old Williams was on the run from a prison work release program.

The victim was a veteran of the Omaha Beach landing during World War II.

The two men who were with Williams when they stopped to rob the man pleaded guilty to lesser charges. Trosky Eric Gregory, now 43, is incarcerated at Staton Correctional Facility in Elmore. Albert Charmichael Jr., now 45, was paroled in 2004.

The last week: William's post-conviction attorney, Joel Sogol, and a law student visited him Monday.

On Tuesday, he was moved to a larger, isolated cell. He spent much of his time writing a couple of letters, watching television and talking with officers, said Brian Corbett, spokesman for the Alabama Department of Corrections. Corbett did not know whom the letters were for. No visitors came Tuesday, but on Wednesday he met his youngest son for the first time.

Koreen Bush, 18, and his foster parents came. Father and son talked for the first time two weeks ago. To his son, Williams left all his possessions: a 13-inch black-and-white television, one box of legal paper and a check for all that remained in his prison account, $38.97.

His last day began with a breakfast of grits, eggs, biscuit, prunes, two cartons of milk and sausage and gravy. For lunch, he requested a Coca-Cola and a hamburger from the vending machine. Soft drinks are somewhat of a luxury since the kitchen does not serve them.

Leading up to: Williams has said in appeals to his conviction that he was passed out drunk in the back seat of the car while the other men shot the veteran.

Williams' attorneys and Project Hope to Abolish the Death Penalty said his mental status was never thoroughly evaluated, noting that Williams, who had been arrested 15 times before his murder conviction, lagged years behind his age group in school.

Alabama Gov. Riley issued a statement on Thursday rejecting their request.

Then the U.S. Supreme Court voted 5-4 to deny a stay of execution.

Last words and such: Williams spoke through the glass partition in the execution chamber separating him from two members of the victim's family, who came to witness his death, and proclaimed his innocence. “They told the other two guys to put it on me. I think it’s wrong. I swear to God I did not kill him." After blaming prosecutors and law enforcement, he called out his original defense attorney, "You provided no defense. I didn’t have no defense, and that’s why I’m here.” Williams went on to say he was never going to give up the other two men. “My name is Luther Jerome Williams. I ain’t no black, little rat,” he said.

Factoids: Williams was the...

36th murderer executed in U.S. in 2007
1093rd murderer executed in U.S. since 1976
3rd murderer executed in Alabama in 2007
38th murderer executed in Alabama since 1976

Williams wished to be cremated, and a couple in Rhode Island accepted the body. They will pay for the cremation, and give his remains to Koreen Bush.
