After receiving a short stay of execution, Beunka Adams lost an appeal by prosectuors and his death warrant was re-instated. His execution started just under three hours after the last appeal was denied.
Adams’ last words were to apologize to the victim’s family, “Everything that happened that night was wrong, if I could take it back, I would. … I messed up and can’t take that back.”
Beunka Adams was pronounced dead at 6:25pm CST on April 26th, 2012.
Richard Cobb, also on death row for the murder of 37-year-old Kenneth Vandever, does not yet have an execution date.
