Execution Watch: 4/24/2013
Texas is rapidly approaching its 500th execution since the death penalty was reinstated in 1976...
ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT, TEXAS PLANS TO EXECUTE:
ELROY CHESTER III. A jury sentenced Mr. Chester to death after he pled guilty to the 1998 fatal shooting of a Port Arthur firefighter who was slain after arriving at his sister's home during a robbery. Mr. Chester's attorneys argued on appeal that he is ineligible for execution because he is mentally impaired, but a divided federal appeals court upheld the sentence.
