GARLAND, TX – A busload of Garland police officers and their spouses will join a caravan of cars heading to Huntsville today for the scheduled execution of Kenneth Mosley.

Mosley, 51, killed Garland Officer Michael “David” Moore nearly 13 years ago during a failed bank robbery.

His execution was delayed twice last year, forcing the officer’s family, friends and colleagues to scuttle plans for the 350-mile round trip.

“Everybody’s been pretty quiet since we got the latest execution date,” said Officer Joe Harn, a spokesman for the Garland Police Department. “We think this one will be it.”

Moore’s wife and three children will join the caravan.

“We don’t know what to expect. This is all new to us,” said Sheila Moore, the officer’s widow.

As relatives began arriving at her home earlier in the week, there were other things to worry about, such as shuttling people from the airport and picking up extra groceries.

“Right now, I’m mainly concerned about the kids and the car,” Moore said with a laugh. “It’s all going to happen, one way or the other.”

Moore’s colleagues on the police force said they will be looking for closure when Mosley finally dies from a lethal injection sometime after 6 p.m. today.

“It’s been a long time, waiting for this day,” Harn said. “It’s pretty emotional for everyone to have it finally happen.”

The execution has forced the people who knew David Moore to recall what happened on Feb. 15, 1997, the day he was killed at a Bank One branch on West Centerville Road in Garland.

Moore was one of three officers who responded to a “suspicious person” call from a bank employee. While the other officers waited outside, Moore entered the bank and was directed toward Mosley, standing in a teller’s line.

    a slow and painful death indeed. anybody can go to sleep and not wake up. you know your dying only till you fall asleep after that you know nothing. i like the ants and honey. better yet death of a thousand cuts. in china it takes not even an hour on most cases to exacute the guilty. bring it on home. it should b put on t.v. pay per view i say. then all the money paid by the viewers should go to the family of the victim to help cover cost of loosing a loved one. rest in peace my friend.
