17 November 2005 – Elias Syriani
He was convicted if the 1990 murder of his wife, Teresa Yousef Syriani, in North Carolina. He stabbed his estranged wife 28 times with a screwdriver as she sat in their car with their 10-year-old son trying to stop his dad.
She managed to survive for 28 days after the attack, but a witness said that she looked like she’d been shot with buckshot. The Jerusalem-born immigrant was executed by lethal injection.
