Hit man at CU eligible for death penalty
NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (7/24/09)--A hired hit man convicted last week of the murder of a Navy officer outside a Virginia credit union is eligible for the death penalty, a federal jury decided Wednesday. The jury did not decide whether to sentence Runyon to death. A U.S. District Court jury ruled that David A. Runyon, 37, met the criteria to be considered for execution for his role in the April 2007 shooting death of Navy Communications officer Cory Allen Voss, 30, which took place outside a Langley FCU ATM in Newport News. The murder was designed to look like a random robbery that went awry, authorities said (Daily Press July 23). Actual sentencing will be determined in a separate hearing, which will begin Aug 19. The same 12-member jury will decide if Runyon should get the death sentence. Last year, Voss’ wife, Catherine Ann Voss, pleaded guilty to masterminding the plot so she could be with her boyfriend and collect roughly $500,000 in Voss’ death benefits. In November, she was sentenced to four life terms. Police say surveillance footage shows Runyon holding Voss at gunpoint. Voss went to the ATM at about 11 p.m. April 29. His wife reported him missing the next morning, and police found his body in the driver's seat of his pickup truck (News Now Dec. 18).
