Father who shot two daughters smiles at ex-wife as he is executed

John David Battaglia

In May 2001, John David Battaglia shot his two young daughters during a scheduled visit while their mother listened helplessly on a speakerphone.

Battaglia was sentenced to death for his crimes. After losing years of appeals, Battaglia was executed last week.

His ex-wife, Mary Jean Pearle, attended the execution. “Well, hi, Mary Jean,” Battaglia said, looking and smiling at her. “I’ll see y’all later. Bye.”
