Harold Lamont Otey
Harold Lamont "Walkin' Wili" Otey (August 1, 1951 – September 2, 1994) was convicted of the murder of Jane McManus. Despite recanting his confession and maintaining his innocence for more than 15 years, Otey became the first person to be executed in Nebraska since 1976 when the death penalty was reinstated. He was executed in 1994 by the State of Nebraska by electrocution, becoming the first person to die in Nebraska's electric chair since Charles Starkweather was executed in 1959. Otey's final days were documented by the CBS News program 48 Hours entitled "Death by Midnight".
