Murderous Stalker of Teenagers Is Executed

January 10, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

A man who stalked teenage girls was put to death in Huntsville for killing one of the girls' mothers during a burglary in 1994.

Michael Moore, 38, appeared to choke back tears as he expressed love for his family and sought forgiveness for the slaying.

"I'm sorry. I can't take back what I have done," he said, looking at the victim's relatives, who watched through a window.

The nine-year Navy veteran was arrested the morning of the slaying about 50 miles southwest of Waco. He confessed shortly after his arrest to killing Christa Bentley, 35.
