Execution Watch: 9/20/12
The wheels of the death machine in Texas keep rolling along...
ON THURSDAY NIGHT, TEXAS PLANS TO EXECUTE:
ROBERT HARRIS. The 40-year-old Lubbock native was condemned following his conviction for two of five shooting deaths during a March 20, 2000 robbery at a Dallas-area car wash. He had been fired from his job there several days earlier. Attorneys for Harris say he is mentally impaired and therefore ineligible for execution under Supreme Court guidelines, an argument rejected in March by a federal appeals court. His lawyer, Lydia Brandt, said she would take the appeal to the Supreme Court.
