A former Dallas accountant condemned for fatally shooting his two young daughters while their mother listened helplessly on the phone was put to death Thursday night in Texas.
John David Battaglia was executed for the May 2001 killings of his 9-year-old daughter, Faith, and her 6-year-old sister, Liberty. Battaglia and his wife had separated, and he shot the girls at his Dallas apartment during a scheduled visit.
His lethal injection was the nation's third this year, all in Texas. The punishment was delayed more than three hours until the U.S. Supreme Court rejected appeals from his lawyers to review his case.

17 years too long, for justice to be served.
Cut and dried cases like this should be carried out in 18 months or so.
The closer to the act, the more of a message will be sent.
No place in hell...
Injection is much too SJW. The Guillotine in public is the way to go.
Thanks Nifster. So sad what happened to those young girls...
I cannot imagine the anguish their mother must have felt
What a D bag
I do not understand men that think killing the kids is in any way reasoned.
Guess it’s not unusual not to be able to understand someone this challenged.
Agreed...and not only that he should have been executed by gunshot while his (presumed) ex-wife listened in.
I have given your suggestion some thought, because the same thought has passed through my mind.
Executing the guilty party using methods they used, would require a human to execute that sort of effort. I question if that price would be worthy.
It seems to me to be too much to ask. The impact on the person would certainly have to be considerable. Some murders are very gruesome. At some point it is unreasoned to pursue this method. I suggest, it probably is in all circumstances. Execute the person by the method approve by the representatives of the populace.
To rid society of this type of person, is enough.
I don't like to use Bible verses to buttress an opinion, but here it seems prudent to do so.
Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, vengence is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. Romans 12:19
I do not believe God will punish in the manner the person has sinned. The person will be destroyed.
Dear Lord, the world needs Jesus, is all I have to say.
Such a sick individual. Hope he made peace with His Creator before he was served justice.
“Cut and dried cases like this should be carried out in 18 months or so.”...........
You are FAR too generous. Why feed and house that scumbag any longer than necessary when there is NO DOUBT he killed those two kids? I would give him NOT MORE than a few days to get himself straight with the LORD, then its “lights out”. He wasn’t generous with his “time” when he killed those kids and tormented his ex. Nope, NO MERCY for him.
You can buy a good enough chainsaw for $50.
He had one of the kids ask the mother on the phone why she wanted Daddy to go to jail; apparently she was trying to get his bail revoked after he was jailed for hitting her.
Few people are prepared for marriage; even fewer are prepared for the failure of a marriage.
He murdered his two daughters while on the phone with their mother.
Maybe President Trump could make public execution by traditional methods mandatory.....Please
