Alabama executes oldest US inmate in modern times

In December 1989, Moody mailed a parcel with a bomb - a steel pipe, smokeless powder and 80 finishing nails - to the suburban Birmingham, Alabama home of Robert Vance Sr, who had only considered Moody's appeal when it was before the full court. Authorities would later say they believed Moody had picked some of his targets to try to make them believe racism or hate groups were involved.

Moody's execution highlighted getting older USA departure row inhabitants that have led countries to put to departure 10 offenders age 70 or elderly simply because 2006, for example Moody.

"In the nearly 30 years since the explosion at their Mountain Brook home killed Judge Vance and seriously injured his wife, Helen, his family never lost faith in America's system of justice and the rule of law", Town said.

Corrections Commissioner Jeff Dunn said Moody was not given any sedatives.

Prosecutors have claimed Moody delivered the bomb to this judge in anger that Moody felt derailed his livelihood and also delivered a second to the civil rights lawyer to confound investigators. Prosecutors said Moody, an ex-law school student, was angry at the legal system for refusing to overturn a 1972 pipe-bomb possession conviction.

Benjamin Fischer, spokesman for the European Jewish Congress, described a "new intensity of anti-Semitic incidents" in Germany. The incident comes at a time of increased fears of anti-Semitism and indications that attacks against Jews are on the rise.

Moody was convicted of murder in Robinson's death in 1991 and sentenced to life in prison by a Georgia court. He became the oldest inmate executed in the United States since the return of executions in the 1970s.

A bomb two days later killed Robert Robinson, an African-American lawyer in Savannah, Georgia. Two more were found and disabled before they could hurt anyone - including one at a courthouse and another at NAACP offices in Jacksonville, Florida. There were not, for example, last-minute questions about his competency or Alabama's reliance on a lethal injection protocol that includes midazolam, a sedative whose use in executions has been bitterly disputed.

Moody had always maintained his innocence.

Zeigler said he is working on a plan - dubbed "Execution Delayed is Justice Denied" - that will "greatly speed up executions without increasing the danger of executing the wrong person".

Vance's son, Robert Vance Jr., now a circuit judge in Jefferson County and Democratic candidate for chief justice in Alabama, said it's important that people remember how his father lived, not just how he died.

The younger Vance said his father also upheld death sentences because he believed in following the law.

Vance's son, Bob, told AL.com in a recent interview that he would not attend the execution. "Justice has been served".
