Execution Watch 9/13/2011
Texas plans to put to death Steven Michael Woods Wednesday for his role in a double homicide in Dallas. Execution Watch will be there.
TEXAS PLANS TO EXECUTE:
STEVEN MICHAEL WOODS. After Woods was convicted and sentenced to death in a double homicide outside Dallas, a co-defendant admitted to killing the couple, saying Woods was present but did not participate in the slayings. The co-defendant received a life sentence. Woods' death sentence was allowed to stand under the law of parties. Texas is the only state in which the law of parties permits the death penalty for those convicted of participating in a crime involving a murder -- even if someone else committed the murder and receives a lesser punishment.
