‘Pog mo thoin’-- executed Boston murderer gives his last words in Gaelic
Three-time killer also said ‘Call my Irish buddies’ as he waited to die
While awaiting sentencing for this murder at a high-security prison in the mountains, home to the state's worst inmates, Gleason strangled 26-year-old Aaron A. Cooper through the wire fencing that separated their individual cages on the recreation yard.
Gleason said he asked fellow inmate Aaron A. Cooper to try on a 'religious necklace,' which Gleason threaded through a wire fence separating the two while they were in solitary recreation pens.
During court proceedings, Gleason indicated he intended to keep killing unless he was given the death penalty, according to the state Attorney General's Office. Gleason told a federal judge earlier this month he did not want a lawyer and called for his execution to proceed.
His former lawyers said Gleason suffered from mental illness and had made several suicide attempts. Their final effort to halt the execution to allow for an evaluation of his mental competency was rejected by the U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday.
