21st Execution of 2009 Today in Texas

Cuban native Yosvanis Valle, 34, is set for lethal injection this evening in Huntsville for Junco’s robbery and slaying. He would become the 21st prisoner executed this year in Texas.

The U.S. Supreme Court refused to review Valle’s case this year. His appeals exhausted, his lawyers lost a petition last week to the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles asking that Valle’s death sentence be commuted to life in prison.

"Nothing else remains for us to do," attorney Roland Moore said.


Call Governor Perry at 512 463 1782 to protest this execution or contact Perry by email through his website.

This is terrible. Nobody should be legally murdered. I don't understand Texas at all.
