Execution Watch: 09/26/2013

On Thursday night the State of Texas will kill again...

ARTURO DIAZ, convicted in the stabbing death of a McAllen man during a 1999 robbery in which Diaz and another man reportedly went to an apartment seeking drugs. Diaz is set to become the 10th person executed for crimes in the Rio Grande Valley since 1982. Another 13 people are in Texas Death Row for crimes in the Valley. On appeal, Diaz complained that his trial lawyers failed to call relatives to testify about a childhood filled with poverty, neglect and violence. The courts rejected the argument, saying the attorneys were following Diaz’s instructions.
