Texas executes 31-year-old man for Dallas-area murders

Post by J&D on Tue Sep 13, 2011 8:59 pm

Texas on Tuesday executed a man who was convicted for being involved in the slayings of two people in north Texas, even though there were doubts whether he was the killer.

Steven Michael Woods, 31, was convicted using a Texas law that allows a defendant to be put to death for a murder someone else may have committed.

Woods was given a lethal injection of drugs and pronounced dead at 6:22 p.m. local time, said Michelle Lyons, a Texas Department of Criminal Justice spokesman.

One thing about Texas is it's not a place you ever want to end-up on Death row for any reason.
