HUNTSVILLE, TX ― A Grayson County man sentenced to die for killing his wife, her daughter and their son, gouged out his other eye in prison last month.

According to the warden at the state prison in Huntsville, death row inmate Andre Thomas gouged out his left eye in early December and then ate it.

Five days after the murders in March 2004, Thomas gouged out his right eye inside a Grayson County jail cell after reading a Bible verse.

The state's top Criminal Appeals Court upheld Thomas' conviction and death sentence back in October of 2008.

Thomas is now in a psychiatric prison facility in Richmond, Texas.

No execution date has been set.

This freak stabbed his wife and two kids to death, then cut out their hearts and took them home in his pockets. He was inspired by the Bible to pluck his eyes out.

If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and throw it away... no, the other right. Can't you figure out how things work in a mirror? And throw it away, don't snack on it.

Self-stimulation with Rosie Palm and her five friends can make you go blind.

Oh, he got the idea from the Bible, I thought maybe he watched 24 last night and got ahold of a ballpoint pen.

Gadzooks, I knew prison food was not top quality... but that is going the extra "green" mile!

Doesn’t seem like his eyes were the problem. Probably pure hate.

Did thine eye offend thee?

But the rest of the verse reads, 'Then cast it from thee'.

Not 'pass it from thee'!

Not even his last meal. Maybe he can auto-cannibalize himself in an even more conventional way for that.

This devolutionary mistake should have been put down a long time ago.

Now his lawyer is going to say he can’t get the death penalty because he can’t see it coming. I bet he told his lawyer “Eye’ll be damned”.
