Jeffery Dillingham Scheduled To Be Executed
AUSTIN - Texas Attorney General John Cornyn offers the following information on Jeffery Dillingham who is scheduled to be executed after 6 p.m. on Wednesday, November 1st.
Dillingham was convicted and sentenced to death for the March 1992 murder of Caren Koslow. Dillingham beat Mrs. Koslow to death with an iron pry bar. Jack Koslow, Caren Koslow's husband, was also severely beaten in the attack, but managed to survive.
Dillingham and his accomplice, Brian Salter, broke into the Koslow's home with the intention of robbing and killing them both. The plan was to murder the Koslows so that Kristi, Jack Koslow's daughter, would inherit their money. Both Dillingham and Salter were to get a share of the money after the murders. Dillingham's share was to be over $1 million.
Dillingham was arrested after a friend of his, who helped Dillingham get rid of some of the evidence, confessed to police.
