Court considers setting executions of 2 Arizona inmates

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) -- The Arizona Supreme Court will consider clearing the way for two Arizona inmates to be executed.

The court could issue execution warrants Tuesday for Robert Henry Moormann and Robert Charles Towery.

If their execution warrants are approved, the two could be put to death sometime in the next two months.

Moormann was convicted of killing and dismembering his adoptive mother in Florence while on a prison release in 1984.

Towery was convicted of killing a man while robbing his home in 1991.

The last inmate to be executed in Arizona was Thomas Paul West, who was put to death July 19 for the beating death of another man in a 1987 robbery.
