An excellent example of an intelligent and talented man driven into criminal behavior by horrible parents. When he was sentenced to death for murder, the Supreme Court had already halted executions in the US. His insistence on being executed opened the door for the reinstatement of the death penalty.
A Texas woman convicted of murdering her mentally impaired fiance for insurance fraud was executed yesterday at 6pm. She is the 14th woman to be executed since the death penalty was reinstated in 1976.
