Robert Moorman, AZ's Longest-Serving Death Row Inmate, Chopped Up Adoptive Mother in 1984 -- and He's Finally Got a Date With Death
|Robert Moorman, Arizona's longest-serving Death Row inmate, 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.
