17 January 2006 – Clarence Ray Allen

Clarence Ray Allen

It was ‘a good day to die’ according to blind and disabled Clarence Ray Allen in a statement read out after he’d been given a lethal injection for murder.

He was sentenced to death for ordering a hitlist of murders. His first was Mary Sue Kitts, his son’s girlfriend. Why? Because he was worried Kitts would shop him to the police for his role in an armed robbery.

From the comfort of his jail cell, Allen then arranged for three other teenage witnesses – Bryon Schletewitz, 19, Josephine Rocha, 17, and Douglas White, 18 – to be shot. It was the latter three murders that earned him an execution.

Up to the point of death, he had been the oldest prisoner on death row in America. Allen was put to death aged 76.
