Execution Watch: 4/16/2014

On Wednesday night, the State of Texas will kill again...

JOSE VILLEGAS, condemned in the slayings of his ex-girlfriend, her son and her mother. Villegas lost his bid to delay his execution date when a Corpus Christi district court judge ruled last week against his attorneys' assertions that he was unstable and not mentally competent to understand what he was doing when he committed the stabbings in 2001. The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that the Constitution prohibits the execution of anyone deemed mentally incompetent.

We still don't know who produced the drug, how the state acquired it or whether its efficacy has ever been tested. But I guess that's just a bunch of 8th Amendment technicalities that we don't need to worry about.

Unless a stay is issued, we'll broadcast live:
