Posted on November 30,-0001
A Mississippi man convicted of fatally shooting his estranged wife and sexually assaulting his 12-year-old stepdaughter in front of her mother while she was dying became the first inmate to be executed in the state in nine years on Wednesday. David Neal Cox, 50, was sentenced to death in 2012 for murdering Kim Kirk Cox and assaulting her daughter Lindsey Kirk three times while her mother was bleeding to death at her sister's Sherman, Mississippi, home in 2010, according to WVTA-TV in Tupelo, Mississippi. Cox surrendered all his appeals and wrote in court filings that he was "worthy of death." He died by lethal injection at the Mississippi State Penitentiary at Parchman. Cox also left a letter related to the 2007 disappearance of his brother’s wife Felicia Cox that wasn’t to be mailed or read until after his death, WTVA reported. Some in her family, including her daughter, believe he may have been involved in her disappearance.
