On May 17, 2011, Daniel Lee Bedford was executed for the 1984 aggravated murders of Gwen Toepfert 25 and John Smith 27.
Bedord shot Toepfert and Smith at Toepfert's Cincinnati apartment, apparently because he was jealous after finding the couple there several days before the slayings.
He killed Smith and shot Toepfert multiple times before returning to her body to issue a last blast into her groin to be sure she was dead
Toepfert's brothers, Robert and Rick Toepfert, watched the execution, as did her uncle.
Execution Method: Lethal Injection
tuna salad, - or vegetarian stir-fry - oven-browned potatoes, greens, coleslaw, fresh fruit,wheat bread and a can of coke.
Last Words: He declined to give a formal final statement but yelled 'I love you' to his adult daughter, Michelle Connor, who was in the witness room.
He also called out to witness Kristi Schulenberg, a friend and pen pal he had kept in touch with since the mid-1990s
'God bless you,' he said as the injection began. His mouth moved slightly and his chest appeared to rise and fall several times before he became still.
