Death Penalty Discussion
I always seemed to enjoy everything that hurt. The desire to inflict pain, that is all that is uppermost.

Kevin Scott Varga - Texas Death Row - Scheduled Execution for May 12, 2010

Victims:Maj. David Lawrence Logie

The Crime: Galloway, Varga and Deannee Ann Bayless, all of Sioux Falls, S.D., and Venus Anderson, of Revilla, S.D., were convicted of involvement with Logie’s death in Greenville on Sept. 7, 1998. Bayless and Anderson were alleged to have lured Logie, of Fayetteville, N.C., to a location behind a local business along Interstate 30, where he was beaten to death and had his car, credit cards and money stolen.

The four defendants were later arrested in San Antonio where Anderson informed authorities of the whereabouts of Logie's body. The same individuals were accused in the indictments filed against them to have participated in the similar murder of David L. McCoy, 48, of Wichita, Kan., on Sept. 6, 1998.

Galloway and Varga were convicted of capital murder and sentenced to death by lethal injection. Bayless and Anderson entered pleas to reduced charges and received lesser sentences.

HUNTSVILLE, Texas — A South Dakota parolee convicted of helping fatally beat and rob an Army officer 12 years ago before setting fire to his body has been executed in Texas.
Forty-one-year-old Kevin Varga was given lethal injection Wednesday evening. His clemency request had been rejected by the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles and his court appeals were exhausted. He was pronounced dead seven minutes later, at 6:19 p.m.
Weeks after Varga and cellmate Billy Galloway were paroled in 1998 from a South Dakota prison, they and two girlfriends drove south from Sioux Falls. Over the next week, the group robbed and killed a man in Wichita, Kan., then did the same to 37-year-old Major David Logie of Fayetteville, N.C. Logie was beaten to death behind a building in Greenville, about 50 miles east of Dallas.
Galloway is set to die Thursday for the same crime.

Last Meal:
4 oz. Ranch dressing; two double cheeseburgers and real deep fried French fries; 5 pieces of deep fried chicken (white meat); 6 Mountain Dews; 16 oz. of tator tots; 1 pint of "Chocolate Overload" ice cream; 8 oz of deep fried mushrooms; and 4 oz. of pepper jack cheese.

Final Statement:
