In Texas, a man who didn’t kill anybody is about to be executed for murder

Terri Been’s voice shook as she read a long text message from her niece.

“I had a nightmare about my dad last night,” Paige Rowan told her aunt in the text.

Rowan described a dream in which she watched helplessly as the execution needle pierced her father’s skin.

She woke up screaming, panicking and feeling hopeless, she told Been.

Then, she said, she dropped to her knees and prayed.

“Please don’t allow this to happen,” Rowan wrote. “Don’t take my father away.”

Been struggled to finish reading the text message, her voice breaking as she paused several times to regain her composure during an interview with The Washington Post.

3. This guy is not innocent

 

His crime doesn't rise anywhere near the level of death penalty but he is not innocent.

6. An accessory was executed in MO in 2009

The actual killer was not executed until 2013.
