ALABAMA --- execution:
Convicted cop killer executed by lethal injection in Alabama
Mario Centobie had no final statement before his execution Thursday for the
1998 murder of a Moody police officer.
Centobie was executed at 6:22 p.m. CST. He stared at the ceiling, never
looking toward the witnesses, throughout the execution process, which took
approximately 20 minutes and was carried out without incident.
The U.S. Supreme Court earlier denied a final appeal by a public defender
to block the execution.
Centobie requested a final meal of barbeque chicken, turnip greens, candied
sweet potatoes, egg noodles with butter and cornbread. He met until 4:30
p.m. with his mother, two brothers and a sister, Department of Corrections
spokesman Brian Corbett said.
Centobie was convicted and sentenced to death for killing Moody police
officer Keith Turner in 1998 while a fugitive from Mississippi.
