Man executed for Prosper murder
Appeal failed to prove that injection is cruel, unusual punishment
HUNTSVILLE A former pizza delivery man was executed Wednesday for the 1990 shooting death of a Prosper woman during a robbery at her home.
Kenneth Eugene Bruce, 32, of Celina became the second death-row inmate in Texas to die this year. He is also the fourth inmate in the last two months to try to stop his execution by arguing that the intravenous cocktail used to kill inmates is cruel and unusual punishment.
In an appeal rejected by the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday, Mr. Bruce's attorneys argued that one of the three drugs in the mixture leaves inmates paralyzed but conscious as the final, lethal poison begins to take effect.
The argument delayed the recently scheduled executions of two other Texas inmates, but new dates have been set for both to die later this month.
