AG Bob McDonnell on the Execution of Kevin Green
“Kevin Green was executed tonight by the Commonwealth of Virginia for the 1998 murder of Patricia Vaughan. Ms. Vaughan was shot and killed by Green in his armed robbery of the small convenience store she owned with her husband, Lawrence, in the Brunswick County community of Dolphin. During that robbery Green also shot Mr. Vaughan two times. He survived the shooting, but Mr. Vaughan will always live with the tragic memory of watching his wife die. The finding of guilt and sentence of death in this case have been reviewed and upheld by the Supreme Court of Virginia, a United States District Court, the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, and the Supreme Court of the United States. Tonight, justice has been served. Our thoughts and prayers remain with Mr. Vaughan, their daughters, and all the family and friends of Patricia Vaughan.” ~ Bob McDonnell
Justice was served. The retardation defense failed. This guy could have a job, drive a car (and all that entails), plan a robbery and getaway, shoot two innocent people killing the one he shot four times, escape on a bus to NOVA with $9000, blow it all but $170 on prostitutes, dope, and clothes.....Yes, justice was served.
