'Waco robbery-drug deal gunman Carroll Parr set to die Tuesday by lethal injection," is the AP report, via KTRK-TV.
Attorneys for Parr last week argued unsuccessfully in state courts and to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that a witness at Parr's 2004 trial had provided an affidavit saying his testimony was false and that he'd been encouraged by McLennan County prosecutors to testify falsely. Trial prosecutors denied the accusations and said the witness' retraction wasn't credible.
The 5th Circuit last year rejected another appeal from Parr, and the U.S. Supreme Court in January refused to review his case.
To date, there have been 10 executions in American death penalty states this year; a total of 1,330 post-Furman executions since 1977.
According to TDCJ, 10 additional execution dates have been set for 2013.
