“The ones who conspired with their underhanded tactics to obtain their conviction will have to live with it for the rest of their lives.”

— Vincent Ciucci, convicted of murder, electric chair, Illinois.
Executed March 23, 1962

When Ciucci’s wife discovered he had a mistress, prosecutors said, the thirty-five-year-old grocer killed their three small children, then his wife, with a rifle. Before his execution, Ciucci himself offered several versions of events, including one in which his wife killed their children.
