Texas judge stays execution of man who raped, killed 12-year-old
HOUSTON (MCT) — A federal judge in Houston on Monday stayed the execution of a Texas man and granted him a competency hearing days before he was to be put to death for the abduction, rape and strangulation of a 12-year-old girl.
Soon after the ruling, the Texas Attorney General’s Office filed a notice of appeal with the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans. A spokesman for the attorney general declined to comment.
