Cecil Sutherland
Sentenced to death for the 1987 abduction, rape and murder of 10-year-old Amy Schulz, of Kell, Ill., in Jefferson County.

Edward Tenney
After hearing testimony about Edward Tenney's career of crime for three weeks, a DuPage County jury has decided that he should be put to death for the 1992 murder of an Aurora man he shot in the head four times for the $6 in his pocket.
The jury made its decision after less than three hours of deliberation. Tenney stared at the jury as they were polled but had no other outward reaction. The victim's family was not in the courtroom.
Tenney was convicted Feb. 24 of the April 16, 1992, first-degree murder and armed robbery of Jerry Weber, 24 of Aurora.
Weber, the father of two sons, ages two years and three months, was fatally shot four times in the head at close range by Tenney, who came across the victim as his van was stuck in the mud in an Aurora farm field.
The two had never met before.
Tenney has also been previously convicted of the 1993 murders of two Kane County widows in their homes during separate home robberies and is serving two life sentences for those crimes. If he doesn't get the death penalty for the Weber murder, he will automatically receive a third life sentence.
The main evidence against Tenney included the testimony of his cousin, Donald Lippert, who accompanied Tenney on all three murders. Lippert is serving an 80-year sentence.
Sentenced to Death 3/9/10.

Andrew Urdiales
Sentended to death for the 1996 murder of a 21-year-old Hammond woman in Livingston County.
