Federal Convict Executed After Brutally Killing Kansas City Teen: 'I Am Deeply Sorry'

Follow-up on a 1998 murder . . . Back in 2004, part of Wesley Purkey's defense was his claim that his victim was a prostitute. Several juries and judges didn't show the con much sympathy and eventually he was convicted in a Kansas City rape, kidnapping and fatal stabbing of 16-year-old Jennifer Long.

Here's the aftermath following claims of dementia didn't stop the execution:

If he could still speak all of that, especially the last sentence, then dementia hadn't taken much toll on his brain.
