Virginia just executed a serial killer:
The El Salvador native was sentenced to death in Virginia in 2010 for the murder of a young couple more than two decades earlier. Rachael Raver and her boyfriend, Warren Fulton III, both 22, were found shot to death in a wooded area a few days after being seen at a Washington, D.C., nightspot.As a Wa Po reporter observed about the execution: "We watched what appeared to be an utterly painless death for a man who brutally killed nine people and devastated nine families," It astounds me that any who claim to value life would want the walking piece of garbage who committed these crimes to be spared.
Prieto was on death row in California at the time for raping and murdering a 15-year-old girl and was linked to the Virginia slayings through DNA evidence. California officials agreed to send him to Virginia on the rationale that it was more likely to carry out the execution.
He has been connected to as many as six other killings in California and Virginia, authorities have said, but he was never prosecuted because he had already been sentenced to death.
Some of his victims, may they rest in peace (photos from WaPo article):
