In the early hours of a September morning, James Mahoney's life would take a sharp left turn because of a man who could not control his addictive behavior.
Richard Bernard Moore was an addict who needed his next fix and decided James at Nikki's Speedy Mart would be his target. He made it out with a measly $1408 while leaving James' lifeless body on the ground, but quickly found his way into police custody and confessing to everything.
After his two-part trial, he was sentenced to death but aggressively started the appeals process soon after. Dick is finally scheduled for execution for the 4th time over the last 20 years, and his will be the first to happen since 2011.
South Carolina just passed a law in 2021 allowing inmates to choose between the electric chair, lethal injection, or a firing squad, however the last dose of lethal drugs in the state expired in 2013. So just this past Good Friday, Richard went with the new method of execution, firing squad.
He is sentenced to die on April 29th, 2022 if his stay of execution request is denied, so now we all eagerly await to see if he will be the first man since 2010 to go out by a bullet.
