John Forrest Parker Executed

Alabama served justice.

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

  1. Not that it's much, but I hope the scum meant what he said to the family.

  2. I'm sorry too. Sorry it took about 22 years for Parker to pay the price.

  5. The family of the defendants are greatly saddened by what our family members have caused the Sennetts. We do not condone or justify their crime whatsoever, and whatever punishment they are faced with, well...it is what it is. There is nothing you can do about what's going to happen. Nothing we nor the Sennett family had any control over. We have never understood and never will understand what went wrong with our beloved family members, just that it not only hurt the victims family but devastated the defendants family. We not only hurt for our accused family member but felt a very deep loss for someone we never knew, with utmost respect...Mrs Elizabeth Dorlene Sennett. This entire event has been extremely hard and painful. Lots of us just chose to block it, not talk about it and hope by some miracle of God, it was only a dream. Our whole lives changed on the day we found out, someone we loved dearly, could have EVER even thought of something this serious. We knew we weren't perfect, but we weren't so bad either. We were devastatingly in shock. This changed the life of more than 1 family, the family who should have never gone through this in the first place. We are so very sorry for the pain and torture caused to the Sennett family.
