“Jesus, remember the sinners.”

– John Richard Marek, convicted of murder, lethal injection, Florida. Executed August 19, 2009.

After meeting Adela Simmons and Jean Trach, who were stranded after their car malfunctioned on their way home to Miami, Marek and Raymond Wigley offered Simmons a ride to the nearest toll booth where she could call for help. Simmons was sexually assaulted and strangled to death. Marek tried to appeal his sentence, claiming that it was Wigley who killed Simmons.
