Texas is on an Execution Roll – #496 Coming Up

Texas is preparing to put to death Richard Cobb Thursday in what would be the state’s 496th execution of the modern death-penalty era. No other U.S. state has put more citizens to death. The closest, Virginia, has executed 110.

TEXAS PLANS TO EXECUTE:

RICHARD COBB, one of two men condemned in a 2002 robbery-slaying in the small, East Texas town of Ruskin. He and Beunka Adams, who was executed April 26, 2012, were convicted of forcing three convenience-store workers into a car, driving them to a field, raping one of the women, and shooting all three with a shotgun. One worker, a mentally disabled man, died. The women survived by playing dead.

EXECUTION WATCH:  Unless a stay is issued, we’ll broadcast live:  Thurs, 25 April 2013, 6-7 PM Central Time, KPFT FM Houston 90.1 and Online…
