Daugaard: Moeller Accepted His Fate

Daugaard: Moeller Accepted His Fate
Donald Moeller | Oct. 22, 2012


Following the execution of Donald Moeller Tuesday night, South Dakota Governor Dennis Daugaard issued a statement.

"After more than 20 years, Donald Moeller finally admitted to killing young Becky O'Connell.  He accepted his fate and dismissed attorneys who continued to oppose his execution," Daugaard said.  "He accepted his fate and dismissed attorneys who continued to oppose his execution.  I take no pleasure in his death, but there are those who are so vile that executions are warranted.  I hope this brings closure to Becky's mother, and I again commend Warden Weber and his staff for their professionalism in planning this second execution this month."

Moeller is the 18th inmate executed in South Dakota.  Eric Robert was executed on October 15 for his role in the murder of Correctional Officer Ronald 'RJ' Johnson during an escape attempt from the South Dakota State Penitentiary.
