ATTORNEY GENERAL STEVE MARSHALL STATEMENT ON THE EXECUTION
OF MICHAEL W. EGGERS
(MONTGOMERY) – Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall released the following
statement after the execution of convicted murderer Michael W. Eggers at Holman
Correctional Facility in Atmore Thursday evening.
“Michael Eggers showed no mercy towards his victim, his former employer, Bennie
Francis Murray, who donated much of her personal time to helping him find a new job.
On the night of her murder, Mrs. Murray gave Eggers a lift to pick up his car. Instead
of showing her gratitude, Eggers rewarded her kindness by brutally beating and
strangling her. He even returned to the scene of the crime to make sure she was dead.
After 18 years of waiting, justice has finally been served tonight for the Murray family.”
