They were an ordinary family, living a great life together. Gary said he did not know why she wanted to annul their marriage.

His final statement before he died on Tuesday was, “I took not one, but two people that we all loved, and I had to live with that while I was here. I ask that you forgive me, not for me but for all.

He added, “I’m fixing to go home, and you all will be here. I want to make sure you don’t suffer. You have to forgive me for healing and moving on,”

The crime had occurred the year before after Green had discovered that his wife wished to end their marriage.

Green stabbed Armstead to death and drowned Montgomery in a bathtub. Green later turned himself into the Police and admitted to committing the murders.

Before the murder, he went to a psychiatric hospital in Dallas as he was not doing good with his mental health. 

A day before the murder, he was with the psychiatrist for follow-up; it was clear that he was not in proper mental health when he tried killing everyone along with him. 

Although he was not mentally stable, he was set to have the death penalty.

Ray Montgomery, the Father of Jazzmen and a witness to the execution, stated that he saw his death as the justice system took its course.

“It’s justice for the way my daughter was tortured. It’s justice for the way that Lovetta was murdered,” said Lovetta’s Father, Ray.
