Robert Moorman, Arizona's longest-serving Death Row inmate, finally has a date with death.
After nearly three decades on Death Row, convicted killer Robert Moorman finally has a date with death.

In November, the Arizona Supreme Court issued an execution warrant for Moorman. This morning, the Court set a date: February 29.

Moorman was first sent to prison on a kidnapping conviction out of Coconino County in 1972. While incarcerated, Moorman was granted a "compassionate furlough" from the Arizona State Prison Complex in Florence so he could spend time with his adoptive mother.

The two stayed at the Blue Mist Motel across the street from the prison. During the visit, Moorman bound and gagged the woman before strangling and fatally stabbing her.

Moorman then chopped her body up into several pieces and disposed of it in dumpsters throughout Florence.

Twenty-six years later, Moorman still hasn't been executed, making him Arizona's longest serving death row inmate -- and costing taxpayers about $24,000 a year for food and housing alone (what Moorman's cost the state in legal expenses is not included in the $24,000. More on that here).

WTF Did I read this correctly "  While incarcerated, Moorman was granted a "compassionate furlough" from the Arizona State Prison Complex in Florence so he could spend time with his adoptive mother." In other words the state gave him a freakin furlough to kill his adoptive Mother, and for a tad bit more insult he did it while staying at a hotel directly across from the prison!! OMFG and he isn't DEAD yet. Lord what does the ever so eloquent and faultless ADOC have to say about this HORRIFIC miscarriage of injustice for this poor "ADOPTIVE MOTHER of this pathetic waste of human flesh. Come on fellow inmates your slacking he should have been target practice the first week he hit the door even in PC. This makes me absolutly violently ill and I am just hearing this for the first time, good lookin out on keeping this one under raps ADOC. and who was the pathetic, vulgar and totally lack o f***ing judgement moron  responsible for this lovely animals granted murder furlough?
