Barring an stays of execution, Beunka Adams will be executed Thursday, April 26th at 6pm CST.
Adams was convicted and sentenced to death for the murder of Kenneth Wayne Vandever in 2002. Adams and his accomplice Richard Cobb were robbing a convenience store in Rusk, Texas. The only customer in the store at the time was Kenneth Vandever, a mentally challenged man who was around the store so often that he often helped to clean along with the clerks.
Vandever and the two female clerks, Candice Driver and Nikki Dement were taken out their car and driven out of town. Adams sexually assaulted one of the women, and then he decided to let them leave. Only a few short moments later he changed his mind. They were forced to the ground where they were shot. While the two women were injured in the shooting, both survived. Vandever, however died from a gunshot wound to the chest.
Richard Cobb was also convicted of murder and also sits on Texas’ death row.
