My friend and colleague John Huck from FOX 5 Las Vegas open up about witnessing the execution of a death row inmate.
Lawrence Colwell Jr. was convicted of robbing and killing 76-year-old Frank Rosenstock, a New York resident visiting Las Vegas.
Rosenstock was lured to his hotel room at the Tropicana Hotel by Colwell's girlfriend Merillee Paul who was posing as a prostitute. Once in his room he was robbed and strangled to death with a belt.
Colwell told the court that he had planned to kill someone for weeks. He wanted to know what it felt like and said it was as easy as driving a car.
On March 26, 2004 Lawrence Colwell Jr. was executed by way of lethal injection at Nevada State Prison in Carson City Nevada. He was the first inmate to be executed after a moratorium on executions.
Colwell was dead within 20 minutes of the injection. John Huck and I both covered the days leading up to the execution and the night it happened.
