83-Year-Old Man Sentenced To Death By Alabama Court

Local judge doesn't plan to attend execution of father's killer, Alabama's oldest death row inmate

Alabama has executed the oldest USA inmate to be put to death in modern times, an 83-year-old man convicted of a federal judge's mail-bomb slaying.

According to the Death Penalty Information Center, a group that specializes in tracking capital punishment, Moody, 83, will be the oldest inmate killed in the modern history of the US.

In last-hour appeals, Moody's attorneys had asked the U.S. Supreme Court to stay his execution in order to review whether his federal sentence, which was handed down first, could be interrupted.

An American, Walter Moody has been sentenced to death by the Court of Alabama after was convicted in 1991 of 71 charges after he killed the federal appeals judge Robert Vance and civil rights lawyer Robert Robinson in 1989.

Prosecutors have stated Moody delivered the bomb into the judge in anger more than a 1972 bomb conviction that Moody felt derailed his livelihood, and delivered the law firm to confuse researchers.

Moody first received seven life sentences in a USA district court in 1991 for the deadly bombings.

Two other mail bombs were intercepted and defused before they exploded, including one at the office of Jacksonville, Florida, office of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). His attorneys have not raised his age in legal filings, but have argued in a clemency petition to Alabama's governor his age and health would complicate the lethal-injection procedure.

This photo provided by the Alabama Department of Corrections shows Walter Leroy Moody. He would be the eighth inmate put to death this year in the United States.

Moody did not give a final statement.

"He was a great judge, a great lawyer before that, and a great father", he said earlier as the execution loomed. That was the same court on which his victim sat almost 30 years ago. Moody was convicted of killing U.S. Circuit Judge Robert S. Vance of Birmingham, who died when he opened a package mailed to his home in 1989.

Moody's execution highlighted ageing USA death row populations that have led states to put to death 10 inmates age 70 or older since 2006, including Moody.
