Tick-tock...

Kid-killing child molester Richard Bible is set to be put to death in just hours for the 1988 murder of a 9-year-old girl.

Richard Bible is set to die at 11 a.m. after losing all of his appeals. He's been on Death Row for more than 20 years.

Bible was convicted in the 1988 murder of Jennifer Wilson. While the little girl was on vacation with her family in Flagstaff, Bible kidnapped her, molested her, and then bludgeoned her to death.

Bible never admitted guilt.

Yesterday, the United States Supreme Court denied his request for a stay of execution.

On Tuesday, the Ningh U.S Circuit Court of Appeals also denied Bible's request for a stay of execution. His lawyers argue that he should not be put to death until hairs found at the crime scene used against him at trial undergo DNA testing.

On Monday, Arizona's clemency board also denied Bible's request for a stay, noting in its decision that he's "the worst of the worst."

As noted by the Arizona Republic, Wilson murder wasn't Bible's first act of violence.

From the Republic:

In 1981, when he was 19, Bible was drinking on Sheep Hill in Flagstaff with his 17-year-old female cousin and they talked about a trip they planned to Sedona for the next day. All of a sudden, Bible tied her up, cut off her clothes with a knife and sexually assaulted her in the back of his pickup truck. He went to prison for six years, and while there, according to court testimony, he told a counselor that he would never again make the mistake of letting a victim testify against him. He may have kept his promise.

Bible was out of prison a year when Jennifer Wilson was murdered.

 Yesooo, I am proud of my natural black lace wigs, but there is no way that I am ready to spend 3 hours or more of my life through the rigors of making it presentable. My hair is natural all the way (I do relax my front wigsand never have) but there is not much I can do with natural hair shoulder length without looking like a woman parading newly disturbed "Ahiaeke. " I give kudos to thoes who have no qualms to relax their hair extensions or thoes who spend up to 6 hours braiding wigs and keep for months without washing every week.

Finally some closure for the Nancy & Rich Wilson! I once lived in Yuma and also knew the Wilsons personally. I`m sure they`re feeling some closure that this ordeal is over with! But yet it is bittersweet!!

Well, the update is that Arizona has executed Richard Bible.  Sounds like he really had it coming.  I agree with others that California, that is so worried about having too many prisoners, continues to fritter time away on silly discussions of lethal injection concoctions when they should just execute their vilest offenders and get on with it.

Jennifer was riding her bike down our dirt road that day.  She asked her mom if she could ride out to the ranch where they borded their horses.  Until that day that road had been safe... home.  I rode my bike along that road at her age a million times, nobody ever worried.  Her mother was only ten minutes ahead of her waiting at the ranch.  Her mother saw Ricky's car pass.  We were only a moment too late to stop it.  Live with that for all these years.  What if I had left just a minute earlier?  We passed her bike laying by the side of the road. Do you know what it is like to walk arm in arm searching your pastures hoping if you find a body she is still alive? Do you know what it is like to swim in a cattle tank hoping to not pull up a body?  To stop every time you see the slightest piece of trash, to look at that poor beautiful girls face every morning and hoping this would be the day somebody found her and please God let her be alive.I remember her father when they found the body.  My heart truly broke.  He sat on that mountain holding his child, crying for hours.Tonight is finally the end and it is LONG overdue.For those sitting vigil for that sick bastard, perhaps you should sit for a moment and think on Jennifer.   Her last hours of life were torture and rape, the last thing she saw was the tats on Ricky's arms choking the life out of her.  The state saved Ricky's life up to now so he could die in a humane way... If they hadn't have I know he would have died years ago in a more "suitable" manner.  We were angry... and we still are! I pray tonight the flame of anger finally dies, as I for one have held it a  long time.  He is NOT forgiven!
