Pizza Killer Sentenced to Death

September 11, 1987|From United Press International

Mitchell Sims, convicted in the torture-murder of a Domino's Pizza deliveryman, was sentenced today to die in the gas chamber.

Sims, 27, a former Domino's Pizza shop manager who allegedly harbored a grudge against the restaurant chain, was convicted in May of first-degree murder in the death of John Harrigan. Harrigan, 21, was robbed, strangled and drowned in a bathtub on Dec. 9, 1985, after delivering a pizza to Sims' Glendale motel room. On June 23, a jury recommended the death penalty for Sims after deciding "there was no other just and fair punishment." Superior Court Judge Jack Tso agreed with the jury.
