Man will be executed for abusing and killing 2-year-old daughter

Convicted of torture, sexually abusing and killing his two-year-old daughter, Alfred Bourgeois, 55, is due to be executed on Friday (11). The man was convicted by the United States court in 2004.

According to the sentence, Bourgeois tortured and sexually molested his daughter, until in July 2002 he beat her to death during a trip in his truck in Texas. He even whipped the girl with an electric cable and burned her soles with a lighter.

Bourgeois’ execution was scheduled for January 13, 2020, but legal procedures prevented the government from proceeding on that date. According to the Justice Department, the man will be executed by lethal injection at the Federal Correction Complex Terre Haute in Indiana.
