Convict executed for murder committed at 17
HUNSTVILLE, Texas (AP) - A
convict who spent a decade on death
row for killing a man when he was 17
was executed by injection early
yesterday after saying he was "ready
to begin my journey."
"About all I can say is goodbye,"
Charles Rumbaugh, 28, said as he lay
strapped to a gurney with needles in-
serted into his arms. "For the rest of'
you, even though you don't forgive me
for my transgressions, I forgive you.
for yours against me.
"THAT'S ALL I wish to say. I'm
ready to begin my journey."
He was the first person in more than
two decades to be put to death for a.
crime committed while under age 18.
His friends on death row said
yesterday they were saddened by his
death, but believed he would be hap-
"I GOT THE impression this was
his ticket to freedom," said inmate
Jim Vanderbilt. "Charlie's punish-
ment is over. He's free now."
While awaiting trial, Rumbaugh at-
tempted to take his life by slashing his
wrist with a razor blade and later by
taking an overdose of drugs. He also
pulled out a makeshift knife during a
1983 hearing and attacked a U.S. mar-
shal, who shot and wounded him.
The next man facing execution,
John Michael Lamb, was critical of
other death row inmates who, unlike
during most previous executions,
voted to leave television on and con-
tinue about their routine during the
"IT WAS like everybody didn't
care," said Lamb, who has an Oct. 7
execution date. "Most are more inter-
sted in TV now. It bothers me."
A human rights group opposed to
executions, Amnesty International,
contended Rumbaugh's death would
violate international agreements -
never confirmed by the U.S. Senate
- which bar execution of people con-
victed of crimes committed when they
were under 18.
"It kind of bothered me a little,"
said Tom Curtis, a former district at-
torney who prosecuted the youthful
Rumbaugh. "He was awfully young
and he had some tough breaks in life.
But Chuckie is very violent, a really
hardened killer, and society has to
TEXAS Attorney General Jim Mat-
tox predicted a quickened pace of
executions in the state this year.
"I believe it is going to gradually
increase and build into a rather
dramatic number of executions," he
Mattox noted that Rumbaugh's case
had gone before two juries. "Each
determined he should be punished by
death," he said.
ABOUT A dozen death penalty op-
ponents carried candles outside the
prison during Rumbaugh's execution.
"More people are concerned about
Pete Rose breaking a baseball record
than about this man's execution
here," said the Rev. Thomas Sheehy,
a Roman Catholic priest from Houston.
Rumbaugh spent his last day
visiting with friends and relatives, but
while his mother, Rebecca, went to
the prison she decided not to see him.
He rejected any lavish final meal,
choosing instead a tortilla and glass of
HE LEFT instructions that his body
be cremated and the remains be
placed in a tiny coffin he constructed
of matchsticks and lined with velvet
and a red bandana.
Rumbaugh was convicted of killing
Michael Fiorillo, 58, during a 1975
holdup at his Amarillo jewelry store.
Rumbaugh's troubles with the law
started at age 6 with a break-in. He
committed his first armed robbery at
12 and spent most of his life in reform
schools, mental institutions and jails.
He was the 10th prisoner to be put to
.death since the state resumed
executions in December 1982. Soie
