Execution Watch: 11/8/12
The state that keeps on killing is planning on killing again...
ON THURSDAY NIGHT, TEXAS PLANS TO EXECUTE:
MARIO SWAIN. A jury convicted the Los Angeles native, following a three-day trial, of murdering a woman after she entered her East Texas home to fine Mr. Swain burglarizing it. Among his claims on appeal were that the prosecution should not have been allowed to introduce his confessions at trial, his attorneys failed to investigate evidence of childhood abuse that might have persuaded the jury to spare his life and a prosecution-requested jury shuffle that placed more whites at the front of the panel of prospective jurors, reducing the likelihood that a black person would be chosen.
