On Wednesday the State of Texas will carry out its first murder the year despite having a self-described pro-life governor.

RICHARD MASTERSON was condemned for the 2001 choking death of a Houston female impersonator. A federal appeals court set in motion the assignment of an execution date when it refused to grant Mr. Masterson the permission he needed to file an appeal with the US Supreme Court. His attorneys argued that his previous attorneys were deficient in representing him and that his confession to police was improper.
