9 January 2004 – Raymond Dale Rowsey
Raymond Dayle Rowsey battered and gunned down his victim all for $55 and a few porn magazines.
Rowsey along with his accomplice and half brother Raymond Steele were found guilty of the 1992 killing of 20-year-old Howard Rue Sikorski during an armed robbery of an American corner shop.
Sikorski had been shot in the face, through both sides of his neck and three times in the back in a frenzied killing. Rowsey was executed by lethal injection at Central Prison in Raleigh, North Carolina, aged 32. Steele was only done for second-degree murder despite testimonies from two fellow convicts saying that Steele admitted Rowsey was not the killer.
