Execution Watch: 4/16/2013
Texas is rapidly approaching its 500th execution since the death penalty was reinstated in 1976...
ON TUESDAY NIGHT, TEXAS PLANS TO EXECUTE:
RONNIE PAUL THREADGILL, 38. Mr. Threadgill was sentenced to death for a 2001 slaying outside a Navarro County nightclub. He was convicted of firing two shots into a car, hitting a 17-year-old who was in the back seat. The U.S. Supreme Court refused to grant certiorari in 2012. His appeal asserted that his lawyers should have negotiated for a felony murder charge instead of capital murder and should have rebutted an alleged shooting in Freestone County that was brought up during the trial.
