Marvallous Keene - Ohio Death Row - Execution set for July 21, 2009

Victims: Joseph Wilkerson, Danita Gullette, Sarah Abraham, Wendy Cottrill, Marvin Washington, Richmond Maddox

The Crime: Keene and three accomplices terrorized Dayton between Dec. 24 and Dec. 26, 1992, in a murder and robbery spree that left six dead and two injured over a 60-hour period. Police said the killers were cold-blooded and unrepentent.

Keene; his girlfriend, Laura Taylor; DeMarcus Smith and Heather Matthews were part of a gang that called itself the Downtown Posse. Keene was the only one who got the death penalty; the others are serving life sentences for aggravated murder and other felonies.

Keene was convicted of murdering Joseph Wilkerson, 34, who was killed at his home at 3321 Prescott Ave.; Danita Gullette, 18, killed at an outdoor pay phone at 517 Neal Ave.; and Sarah Abraham, 38, killed at her grocery store at 1201 W. Fifth St. When it appeared they would snitch on him, Keene then silenced Wendy Cottrill, 16, and Marvin Washington, 18. Both were killed behind a gravel pile on city property at 1654 Richley Drive. A sixth victim, Richmond Maddox, was killed by Taylor.

Ohio has executed a man convicted in a 1992 Christmas holiday killing spree that left six people dead and two wounded.

Marvallous Keene died by lethal injection at 10:36 a.m. Tuesday at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Lucasville, one week after the state's last execution.

The 36-year-old Keene and three accomplices went on a three-day murder and robbery rampage in Dayton that began on Christmas Eve 1992. The victims included an 18-year-old mother gunned down at a pay phone, a convenience store clerk and two teenage acquaintances whom Keene feared would tell police about his crimes.

Prosecutors say Keene was the triggerman in four of the five deaths for which he was convicted. His three accomplices are serving life sentences
