McALESTER (AP) - Moments before James Glenn Robedeaux was executed for murdering his girlfriend, he asked forgiveness from her family, even telling them he loved them. But the daughter of victim Nancy McKinney said she didn't care what Robedeaux had to say. Tammy McKinney said she only wishes Robedeaux would have suffered more. "I think he had an easy death. He went to sleep. That's not comparable to what he did to my mother," McKinney said after watching Robedeaux's execution with 13 of her family members. Robedeaux, 51, was pronounced dead at 12:24 AM Thursday after receiving a dose of drugs at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary. He was convicted of murdering Nancy McKinney on Sept. 22, 1985. He then dismembered her and dumped her body parts in a stream.
