After a number of delays, Charles Frederick Warner is now scheduled to die by lethal injection January 15, 2015.
Shonda Waller is baby Adrianna’s mother. She was just 22 years old when her infant was raped and murdered by Charles Warner.
Waller testified in each trial, re-living the details of her daughter’s death over and over again.
She says she doesn’t remember the prosecutor ever asking what she thought about justice for Charles Warner.
“I don’t want to see him to be sentenced to death.” Waller said. “If they truly want to honor me then they will do away with the death penalty for him and they will give him life in prison without the possibility of parole because that’s the only thing that’s going to honor me.”
