Texas Executes Hit Man for Killing Woman who Failed to Pay Protection Money

A Mexican Mafia hit man who killed a woman because she didn't pay the gang's 10% tax on the drugs she sold was executed Wednesday evening in Texas, the Associated Press reported.

The injection of Manuel Vasquez with a lethal dose of pentobarbital leaves Texas with enough of the powerful sedative to carry out only one more execution. Vasquez, 46, was the fourth Texas inmate put to death this year, and at least six are scheduled for execution in the coming weeks.

Texas' is scheduled to execute cop killer Randall Mays next week. Executions set for April in the state with the most active death penalty will require a new lethal drug supply to be carried out.
