Charles Lorraine Case
On the evening of May 6, 1986, Petitioner went to the home of Doris and Raymond Montgomery, age 80 and 77, respectively. The Montgomerys had in the past hired Petitioner to do jobs around the house. Petitioner lured Raymond upstairs. Petitioner stabbed Raymond five times in the back with a butcher’s knife. Petitioner went back downstairs and stabbed Doris, who was bed-ridden, nine times. He then burglarized the home.
Petitioner proceeded to a bar and bought drinks with the stolen money. Petitioner bragged about killing two “old people.” He and a friend left the bar. They broke into a house and stole $40 and a car. They then went back to the Montgomerys’ house and stole money, jewelry, and a gun. Afterwards, Petitioner and his friend went to Denny’s for breakfast.
Petitioner confessed to the killings on videotape.
