Stephen Peter Morin (February 19, 1951 – March 13, 1985) was a serial-killer executed by lethal injection by the state of Texas. Morin withdrew all appeals after pleading guilty to the 1981 capital murder of Carrie Marie Scott. Morin was later convicted of the killings of Janna Bruce in Corpus Christi and Shelia Whalen in Golden, Colorado. Morin said he never intended to kill Scott and pleaded with her to leave him alone but then he said something came over him and the gun went off. Because of Morin’s heavy drug use, medical technicians searched for nearly 40 minutes to find a usable vein for the injection. Morin was pronounced dead 12:55 a.m. on March 13, 1985 by lethal injection, becoming the sixth man to be executed in Texas since the state began using lethal injections in 1982.
