Robert Moorman

(Sentenced to death: May 7, 1985) Robert Moorman has been in prison the longest among death row inmates — 39 years. He was sentenced to life in prison on May 3, 1972 on a kidnapping charge out of Coconino County, but 13 years later was sentenced to death. While serving his life sentence in a DOC prison in Florence, Moorman was given a 72-hour compassionate furlough to visit his mother. The two stayed at the Blue Mist Motel across from the street from the prison. On Jan. 13, 1984, Moorman bound and gagged his mother in Room 22 and then strangled and stabbed her. Moorman chopped the body into many parts and disposed of them in at the motel and Dumpsters throughout Florence, according to prison records. The crime brought an end to compassionate furlough visits.
