Texas plans to murder Guadalupe Esparza on Wednesday night.
TEXAS PLANS TO EXECUTE
GUADALUPE ESPARZA. Mr. Esparza, 46, received his execution date August 16, 2011, from a San Antonio judge who ignored his attorney's request for a delay to prepare an appeal based on evidence that Esparza is mentally retarded. A jury ordered Esparza put to death in 2001 following his conviction in the abduction, rape and strangulation of a 7-year-old girl. The victim's mother, Diana Berlanga, said she planned to witness Esparza's execution. More background at executionwatch.org.
