SIOUX FALLS | A South Dakota inmate set to be put to death for the 1990 slaying of a 9-year-old girl ate a last meal Tuesday of scrambled eggs, link sausage, tater tots and drip coffee.
The South Dakota Department of Corrections says 60-year-old Donald Moeller made the request days ago.
Authorities say Moeller kidnapped Becky O'Connell from a Sioux Falls convenience store, drove her to a secluded area near the Big Sioux River, then raped and killed her. Her naked body was found the next day; she had been stabbed and her throat was slashed.
The girl's mother, Tina Curl, drove with her husband to Sioux Falls from New York state to witness the execution.
