The little boy that this monster murdered was our neighbor and friend. And so I have followed this case closely.
The murderer pleaded guilty, claimed he was SAVED, and he asked for execution — actually said in Court he would not file an appeal. His execution date was set. Weeks before the execution date, Amnesty International visited him and thet DID file an appeal on his behalf.
And so he sits on Death Row. No execution date set.
He killed a 8-year boy, a little boy who was a delight to his friends and the neighbors. Scum of the earth like Perry Austin should be executed immediately, as soon as a judge/jury gives the nod.
Execution dates cannot be set until the convict exhausts his appeals. Thank you, Supreme Court.
IIRC, he will be running out soon - at least we have the express lane for that here in TX.
