Woman Gives Up Effort To Stay Moeller Execution

October 24, 2012, 5:10 PM

Woman Gives Up Effort To Stay Moeller Execution
Donald Moeller | August 2012

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

A Sioux Falls woman with loose family ties to death row inmate Donald Moeller has given up her effort to stop Moeller's upcoming execution.

Donna Nichols' attorneys on Wednesday filed a motion with the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to dismiss the appeal of his federal case challenging South Dakota's execution protocol.

On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Lawrence Piersol denied Nichols' motion to stay the execution and intervene in the case. Nichols, whose mother married Moeller's stepfather, says Moeller wasn't psychologically qualified to dismiss his appeals.

Moeller was convicted for the 1990 kidnapping, rape and murder of 9-year-old Becky O'Connell. He recently asked a federal judge to dismiss his appeals and let him die.

His execution is scheduled for next week.
