The Texas execution bandwagon just keeps rolling along.
Texas plans to execute a man Tuesday whose sentencing hearing included a presentation by a prosecution psychologist whose testing methods for developmental disability have since been debunked as unscientific. Execution Watch will air coverage of the state killing, plus a taped interview with the condemned, Jamie McCoskey. Spread the word.

TEXAS PLANS TO EXECUTE: JAMIE McCOSKEY, a Houston bartender convicted in the 1991 kidnapping and stabbing death of a 20-year-old man. McCoskey was one of 16 defendants sentenced to death in separate cases after the now-disgraced psychologist George Denkowski used his own, non-standard methods to conclude that none was developmentally disabled. His determination sank the defendants’ chances of having their death sentences declared unconstitutional. Denkowski’s punishment included being barred from performing such evaluations in future.
