Larry Bill Elliott Executed

Old sparky got the the call on this execution.

JARRATT, Va. (AP) — A former Army counterintelligence worker was executed by electric chair Tuesday for killing a Virginia couple, becoming the first U.S. inmate to die by electrocution in over a year.

Larry Bill Elliott was pronounced dead at 9:08 p.m. at Greensville Correctional Center in Jarratt. He was convicted of the January 2001 shooting deaths of 25-year-old Dana Thrall and 30-year-old Robert Finch.

Prosecutors said Elliott killed the couple to win the love of former stripper and escort Rebecca Gragg, who was involved in a bitter custody dispute with the man who was killed.

Elliott said in the death chamber that he had prepared a final statement for his attorneys to read after the execution. In the typed statement, Elliott maintained his innocence.
