Mom of slain girl plans to witness Moeller's death

Posted: Updated:

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - The mother of a Sioux Falls girl who was raped and murdered says she plans to witness the execution of her daughter's killer.

Tina Curl's 9-year-old daughter, Becky O'Connell, was killed in 1990. She was abducted from a Sioux Falls convenience store, raped and murdered.

Donald Moeller was convicted of killing the girl and sentenced to death. Moeller has contested his case in the courts for years. But his lawyer says now that Moeller doesn't want any more delays. No date has been set yet for his execution.

Curl now lives in New York state. She says she'll be there when Moeller is executed. She says she "won't get any peace of mind" until Moeller is dead, "and I will be there to see it."
