Execution Watch: 8/22/2012
The wheels of the death machine in Texas keep rolling along...
ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT, TEXAS PLANS TO EXECUTE:
JOHN BALENTINE. It's the third execution date for the former auto mechanic and laborer convicted in the 1998 deaths of three teens in Amarillo. Prosecutors said the slayings were the result of a feud between Mr. Balentine and his ex-girlfriend's brother, one of the victims. Mr. Balentine was granted stays after arguing that his trial attorneys did a poor job. Mr. Balentine had a lengthy criminal record in his native Arkansas that included kidnapping, assault and robbery.
