25 January 2006 – Marion Dudley
Don’t be fooled by the name. Marion Butler Dudley was all man when he decided to kill six young men and women, plus an unborn child, in his deadly search for coke.
With his vain attempts to get a cocaine supply thwarted, Dudley turned his gun on a house full of occupants, despite the fact that one person was heavily pregnant.
He shot Jose Tovar in the head, along with his teenage stepson Frank Farias and Faria’s girlfriend, Jessica Quinones, who had just two months to go before she was due to give birth, along with 21-year-old neighbour Audrey Brown.
Two other victims – Jose’s wife, Rachel and a friend Nicholas Cortez – survived to identify Dudley and his two other associates. Dudley was sentenced to be executed by lethal injection on 25 January 2006 in Huntsville, Texas aged 23.
