“I would like to say I apologize to Carol Skjerva, the girl that I murdered, her family and her friends. This is the punishment that I deserve. I’m taking responsibility for my actions. I want everybody to know I’m not a volunteer but this is my responsibility I have to take.”

— Glen Ocha, convicted of murder, lethal injection, Florida.
Executed April 5, 2005

An intoxicated Ocha brought Carol Skjerva into his home and had sex with her. After she threatened to tell her boyfriend what happened, Ocha tried three times to strangle her with a rope. He finally hung the rope from his kitchen doorframe and drank a beer while she died. Ocha had a long history of drug and alcohol abuse. He pleaded guilty to the crime and waived a jury trial.
