The 32nd Execution of 2014
Chadwick Banks was executed in Florida on November 13, 2014. He fatally shot his sleeping wife and then raped and killed his 10-year-old stepdaughter 22 years ago, reported The Associated Press.
The forty-three-year-old Banks was pronounced dead at 7:27 AM after a lethal injection at a Florida State Prison, the office of Gov. Rick Scott said.
Banks was condemned for the September 1992 killing of 10-year-old Melody Cooper. Banks also received a life sentence for the murder of his wife, Cassandra Banks, in a community outside the state capital of Tallahassee.
Authorities said Banks was drinking and playing pool at a bar before going home about 3 a.m. the night of the slayings. Banks shot his wife point-blank in the head and then raped and shot his stepdaughter, according to authorities.
