Arizona man executed for murder

By Associated Press | Dec 05, 2012

FLORENCE, Ariz. — An inmate was executed Wednesday after being convicted of murdering two 13-year-old girls in a ghost town where they were raped, strangled and stabbed before being dumped in a partly flooded mine shaft.

Richard Dale Stokley, 60, was put to death at a prison in Florence two decades after he and another man were convicted of murdering Mandy Meyers and Mary Snyder in 1991 in rural Cochise County.

The execution of Stokley was Arizona’s 34th since 1992. Daniel Cook was put to death on Aug. 8 in Arizona’s most recent execution.
