TEXAS PLANS TO EXECUTE: MICHAEL YOWELL, convicted in a 1998 triple murder in Lubbock, in which Yowell’s father, mother and grandmother died of injuries sustained before or during a fire at their home. Yowell’s execution date has been delayed in the past, based on the contention that his trial lawyers did not provide effective representation. At the time of the slayings, Yowell had a history of mental illness.
Featured Interview: MICHAEL YOWELL, who accepted Execution Watch’s invitation to be interviewed, with the understanding that the audio recording would air unedited, in its entirety, and only in the event of his execution. The interview took place Aug. 28 on death row.
NEXT SCHEDULED EXECUTION: On Oct. 16, Texas plans to kill LARRY HATTEN. If it does, Execution Watch will air coverage.
