"Houston man’s execution is sixth so far this year," is Michael Graczyk's AP report, via the Austin American-Statesman.
A Houston man condemned for killing a police officer during a car theft arrest 14 years ago was put to death Wednesday after his last-day appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court failed.
Jeffrey Demond Williams, 37, became the sixth Texas inmate executed by lethal injection this year.
To date, there have been 12 executions in American death penalty states this year; a total of 1,332 post-Furman executions since 1977.
According to TDCJ, nine additional execution dates have been set for 2013.
