Monsters Among Us: David Kevin Hocker killed his boss, Jerry Wayne Robinson to get money for crack; Executed 9/30/2004

remembering the victimsFrom Hocker’s appeal: The victim, Jerry Wayne Robinson, owned a small business in Houston County, Alabama.   The Defendant David Kevin Hocker worked for Mr. Robinson.   They were together on March 21, 1998 and were seen by the victim’s wife at West Building Supply in Dothan, Alabama. That would be the last time she saw her husband alive.   The next time she saw him was at the funeral home when she identified his body.

“Sergeant Donald Valenza of the Houston County Sheriff’s Department received a call from the Mobile County Sheriff’s Department informing him that Mobile had the Defendant Hocker in custody.   He had confessed to Mobile authorities that he had murdered Jerry Robinson.   Sergeant Valenza went to Mobile and took a statement from Hocker at which time Hocker admitted to killing Jerry Robinson by stating that he had broken a knife off in his chest.   Sergeant Valenza transported Hocker back to Houston County, Alabama, and made arrangements with the Headland Police Department to locate the body.   Hocker took the officers to the body which was located in Henry County, Alabama.   The body contained a single stab wound to the chest with the ․ blade imbedded in Jerry Robinson’s chest.   There were numerous cuts, abrasions and other injuries.

“Upon further investigation and the Defendant’s statement it was learned that Jerry Robinson and Hocker had gone to West Building Supply to purchase materials to build a fence.   Hocker later dumped the building materials in a ditch.   He had intended to kill Jerry Robinson at his office but a co-owner was present.   By ruse, Hocker talked Jerry Robinson into going with him to Henry County to pick up a microwave oven.   While in the truck Hocker stabbed Jerry Robinson in the chest, drove to a remote area and dragged Jerry Robinson from the vehicle.   Hocker then proceeded to beat and stomp Jerry Robinson causing over thirty contusions, scrapes and cuts.   Jerry Robinson’s Adam’s apple was broken.   There was a fracture of the thyroid cartilage.   According to the forensic pathologist, Dr. Parades, Jerry Robinson remained alive during this vicious beating and was able to feel pain.   However, the stab wound to the chest was the lethal wound.

“Hocker stole Jerry Robinson’s green truck, ATM card and cash.   After several withdrawals through the victim’s ATM card Hocker purchased $400.00 in crack cocaine and then drove to Mobile, Alabama. While on crack he believed the police were chasing him and he abandoned the truck and ran through the woods causing numerous scratches to his face.   Hocker later rented a motel room in Mobile and called 911 to turn himself in.   He subsequently gave statements to the Mobile County Sheriff’s Department and Sergeant Valenza confessing to the crime.

“In his statements Hocker claimed that the victim made sexual advances towards him which caused him to stab the victim.   However, three witnesses testified that Jerry Robinson was not homosexual.   He was a married man with two children.”

Final Words:
Just before his execution, Bordelon apologized to LeBlanc’s mother, uncle and sister, who witnessed the execution, and he asked for their forgiveness. “I’m sorry. I don’t know if that brings any closure or peace. It should have never happened, but it did, and I’m sorry,” he said, choking up and halting to collect himself. His eyes red-rimmed from crying, Bordelon added, “I’d like to apologize to my family and tell them that I love them.”

Monsters Among Us: William Frank Parker executed for killing his former in-laws, James and Sandra Warren

DVFrom Parker’s appeal: Parker was divorced from Pam Warren. Pam’s father, James Warren, and her sister, Cindy Warren, were getting into Mr. Warren’s truck in front of their house on November 5, 1984, when they saw Parker approaching the truck with a gun. Cindy got on the floor of the truck, from where she heard shots being fired. Cindy then got out of the truck and attempted to spray mace into Parker’s face. Parker fired one or two shots at Cindy, not hitting her, and then chased Mr. Warren into the house. Mr. Warren and his wife Sandra were later found in the house where they had been shot to death by Parker. In the events that followed that same day, Parker kidnapped and shot his ex-wife, Pam Warren, and shot a police officer three times in a shootout at the Rogers Police Department.
