East Texas Man Killed on the Job

by Ramonica R. Jones

A Livingston man has been killed on the job in a workplace accident. It happened at the Alabama Point Subdivision in Polk County.

Seventy-nine year-old Luther Bernard "Jack" Moseley was operating a piece of heavy equipment Wednesday when he got caught in the machinery.

Moseley was the father of Pamela Moseley-Carpenter. She was killed by Johnny Penry back in 1979. That case sparked a nationwide debate about whether mentally retarded people should be executed.

Penry was convicted of raping and stabbing the woman to death.
