O'Connell's Mother To Attend Killer's Execution

O'Connell's Mother To Attend Killer's Execution
Becky O'Connell

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

A woman whose 9-year-old daughter was kidnapped, raped and slashed to death 22 years ago in South Dakota says she's raised enough money to attend the convicted killer's execution.

Tina Curl moved to Lake Luzerne, N.Y., shortly after Becky O'Connell's death in May 1990. Curl and her husband, Dave, say they needed help raising funds for the trip because they're surviving on $720-a-month disability checks.

Curl says publicity of her predicament brought in more than the needed $4,000, with donations from as far away as Chicago and Alaska.

Authorities say Moeller kidnapped O'Connell from a Sioux Falls convenience store, drove her to a secluded area near the Big Sioux River, then raped and killed her.

The execution is scheduled for the week of October 28-November 3.
