Man Faces 2nd Death Sentence

Oklahoman Published: September 28, 1989

Police say the couple began a cross-country robbery and killing spree Nov. 1, 1987, that ended 28 days later in a shoot-out with police in Panama City, Fla. They were in Calhoun's car when they were captured.

Howell has a 25-year sentence in Florida for attempted murder and resisting arrest. Watson has a 15-year sentence.

Defense attorney Larry Nance said Watson will begin her life sentence in Tennessee after she finishes her prison sentence in Oklahoma. She is expected to appeal.

An appeal of the death penalty is automatic.

Howell moved to Memphis after his release from a Wyoming prison in May 1987 following an eight-year sentence in the robbery-slaying of an elderly motel clerk. BIOG: NAME:
