Robert Moorman was executed this morning at Arizona State Prison Complex – Florence for the murder and dismemberment of his adoptive mother 28 years ago.
In his last words, he apologized to his family and to his victim in a 1972 abduction and rape.
“I hope that this will bring closure and they can start the healing now,” he said. “And I just hope they will forgive me in time.”
Wednesday morning, Moormann met with a Catholic deacon, telling him he was “ready to go home” and that he hoped there would be healing after his execution. According to prison officials, he prayed, took communion and said, “I trust God.”
Moorman’s last meal consisted of a hamburger, fries, two beef burritos, three RC Colas and rocky road ice cream.
