    OH - Jeffrey Lundgren facing execution for five '89 murders

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,224359,00.html

    COLUMBUS, Ohio Sixteen years ago, Jeffrey Lundgren tried to convince a jury that he was a prophet of God and therefore not worthy of the death penalty.

    "It's not a figment of my imagination that I can in fact talk to God, that I can hear his voice," he said. "I am a prophet of God. I am even more than a prophet."

    Thanks for the story. I wish murderers would leave God out of it! Prayers for the Averys and for this pitiful, misguided man.
    I do not intend to tiptoe through life only to arrive safely at death!

    Wonder who he's talking to now...I doubt it's God, but the other guy.

    I had forgotten how horrific these crimes were until I saw the news Mon and Tues. By far, this is my favorite quote about Lundgren's appeal attempt:

    U.S. Rep. Steve LaTourette, the former county prosecutor who put Lundgren on death row and convicted most of his 10 followers in the cult, said Lundgren's efforts "to eat his way out of the death penalty were ludicrous."

    "If Jeffrey Lundren's excuse is that he is too fat to execute, perhaps we should consider executing him in the manner in which he executed his victims - with a bullet to the brain," LaTourette said.

    =====================
    For his last meal, he had white turkey meat, mashed potatoes and gravy, tossed salad, bread stuffing and pumpkin pie with whipped cream. He washed the meal down with Pepsi. Lundgren declined his right to meet with or call anyone and spent the afternoon at the Lucasville prison reading his Bible...

    Someone please tell me why some prisons still allow these heartless murderers a fine "last supper"?
