Execution Watch 7/18/12
The state that carries out more executions than any other state is ready to kill again. This time Texas will use a single lethal dose of pentobarbital due to shortages in supplies of sodium thiopental.
ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT, TEXAS PLANS TO EXECUTE:
YOKAMON HEARN, 33. Mr. Hearn was sentenced to die in the 1998 slaying of a North Dallas man who was abducted from a coin-operated car wash, driven to a secluded area and shot to death. The victim's Mustang was found the next day in a shopping center parking lot. Hearn, who was 19 at the time of the crime, has been on death row since New Year's Eve 1998.
