Execution Watch: 2/21/2013
And the killing machine just keeps running...
ON THURSDAY NIGHT, TEXAS PLANS TO EXECUTE:
CARL HENRY BLUE. Convicted of killing his ex-girlfriend in 1995 by burning her alive at her College Station apartment. His attorneys argued, unsuccessfully, that he was mentally impaired and therefore ineligible for the death penalty. Mr. Blue acknowledged drinking and smoking crack the night of the slaying. Mr. Blue's death sentence was affirmed in 2001 following a second punishment hearing. The case was sent down for a new hearing because the state's psychologist testified that Mr. Blue was a future danger because he was black.
