An inmate was executed Wednesday after being convicted of murdering two 13-year-old girls in a ghost town where they were raped, strangled and stabbed before being dumped in a partly flooded mine shaft.
Stokley has said he thought his life was worth saving, that he knew he had made "grave and irreversible errors" and that he was sorry he "was mixed up in these awful events that brought me to this."
"I don't want to put anyone through that, especially since I'm convinced that ... it's pointless," he wrote. "I reckon I know how to die, and if it's my time, I'll go without fanfare."
