A 49-year-old man who was executed Thursday in Indiana spoke of Islam shortly before his execution at the Federal Correctional Complex in Terre Haute.
Orlando Cordia Hall was the eighth federal inmate executed this year by lethal injection.
“I invite everyone to Islam,” Hall said, according to the Tribune-Star. “Thank you for giving me this opportunity for forgiveness. Thank everyone who’s here — my family and my loved ones. I love you.”
Hall also had one final message.
“I’m OK,” he said, according to the New York Post. “Take care of yourself. Tell my kids I love them.”
A marijuana trafficker convicted of kidnapping, raping a teen, then burying her alive was executed this week at an Indiana prison, becoming the 8th federal inmate to die this year.
Orlando Cordia Hall, 49, was put to death via lethal injection late Thursday.
