Charles Sennett said death is not easy for anybody, right or wrong.
His comments came Thursday just minutes after he witnessed the execution of John Forrest Parker, the man convicted in the 1988 murder-for-hire death of Sennett's mother, a Colbert County minister's wife.
Sennett and his brother, Michael, were at Holman Prison and watched Parker, 42, die from lethal injection.
Alabama corrections authorities said Parker was executed at 6:41 p.m. He is the first Shoals resident to die by lethal injection since it began in 1927.
Before the execution, Parker told the Sennett family he was sorry for what he did.
“I'm sorry; I don't ever expect you to forgive me. I really am sorry,” Parker said just minutes before the execution process began. TimesDaily
