Summary of Offense:
A jury has determined that Leslie Galloway III deserves the death penalty for raping, burning, and running over a 17-year-old Harrison Central High School student. Just before 2:00 pm today, jurors returned to the Harrison County courtroom. They spent about two hours deliberating a sentence for the convicted capital murderer. Yesterday, the same jury determined that the Moss Point man was guilty of the December, 2008 murder of Shakeylia Anderson. Prosecutors convinced a jury that Leslie Galloway used his mother's car to drag Shakeylia Anderson after he had raped her, cut her throat, and set her on fire.
Galloway was sentenced to death on September 24, 2010.
