Execution Watch: 10/9/2013

On Wednesday night the State of Texas will kill again without regard to the law...

MICHAEL YOWELL, convicted of a 1998 triple murder in Lubbock, in which his father, mother and grandmother died of injuries sustained before or during a fire at their home. Yowell's execution date has been delayed in the past based upon a claim that his trial lawyers failed to provide effective representation.

On Monday, Federal District Judge Lynn Hughes rejected Mr. Yowell's request for a stay on the grounds that the drug acquired from a local compounding pharmacy may result in cruel and unusual punishment. The US Supreme Court then turned around and denied his request without comment.

Unless a stay is issued, we'll broadcast live:
Wednesday, October 9, 2013, 6-7 PM Central Time
KPFT FM Houston 90.1 and Online...
