Mississippi inmate, David Neal Cox has been executed to a death sentence for killing his wife and sexually assaulting his stepdaughter at home in Sherman in 2010.
Cox, of Pontotoc County, pleaded guilty and was sentenced to death by a Union County jury in 2012, the same year that the state carried out its last execution; becoming the first inmate executed in Mississippi in nine years.
Before the Texas Supreme Court set its execution date, David Neal Cox, 50, dropped all appeals and filed court papers declaring himself “worthy of death.” As he was given a deadly injection, he appeared peaceful. At 6:12 p.m. CST, a coroner at the Mississippi State Penitentiary in Parchman pronounced him dead.
Cox’s now 23-year-old stepdaughter was among those who witnessed the execution. On the night of May 14 and 15, 2010, in the little hamlet of Sherman, she was 12 years old when he sexually abused her three times in front of her wounded mother while holding them and one of her younger brothers prisoner.

Kim Cox reported her husband’s sexual assault of her kid from a prior relationship to the police in 2009.
Cox, a former truck driver, was detained and held in custody for nine months before being released on bond.
Cox purchased a handgun on May 14, 2010, and drove to his sister-in-house, the law’s where his estranged wife, his two young sons, and his stepdaughter resided.
According to prosecutors, he fired his way into the house and held his wife and two children captive for over eight hours. Kim Cox was killed by her estranged husband David Neal Cox, leaving behind two daughters and two sons During the standoff with police, Cox shot his wife in the stomach and arm and as she lay dying for several hours, he sexually assaulted his then 12-year-old stepdaughter three times in front of her.

Early the next morning, police raided his residence and arrested him. After pleading guilty to murder, sexual assault, and other offenses, he was condemned to death in 2012.
Cox has petitioned the Mississippi Supreme Court to have his counsel removed from the case and all appeals on his behalf halted.
He called himself “a guilty man worthy of execution” in a 2018 letter to the court’s top justice.
The moment before his death
Cox appeared to take several deep breaths after the lethal chemicals started flowing through a clear plastic tube into his body, and his mouth moved some. He was pronounced dead within a few minutes.
Words from commissioner
Meanwhile, a new mystery has arisen, with Mississippi Commissioner Burl Cain saying Cox “told me one time, only this, that he had left a letter with someone to mail after he was dead. Who knows what, when, or where. If it appears, it does, if it (doesn’t) he didn’t.”
Cain described Cox as “upbeat” on Wednesday afternoon in the hours leading to his death. For his final meal, Cox requested fried catfish, coleslaw, hush puppies, French fries, and banana pudding. Following the MDOC execution protocol, Cox was moved from his normal maximum-security cell in Unit 29, Sunday, to Unit 17, a separate building that houses the execution room and witness room. “We met with him for about 45 minutes to talk about what would happen, the process we would follow and what he wanted for his last meal,” Cain said. “He was upbeat.” The commissioner said Cox did express “a little bit” of remorse toward his victims but would not be specific when pressed for details by the media.
