    HUNTSVILLE, Texas (AP) - A Mexican citizen convicted of fatally beating a former Baylor University professor and attacking his wife at their ranch near Kerrville is headed to the Texas death chamber.


    Ramiro Hernandez-Llanas would be the sixth Texas prisoner executed this year.


    The 44-year-old was a convicted murderer who had escaped from a Mexican prison and was in the U.S. illegally when he was arrested for the 1997 slaying of 49-year-old Glen Lich. Lich had given him a construction job.


    Hernandez-Llanas' appeals were exhausted, and the Texas parole board refused to commute his prison sentence to life.


    His lethal injection Wednesday would be the second in a week with a new supply of pentobarbital. The U.S. Supreme Court has upheld Texas prison officials' decision to withhold the identity of the new drug provider.

    Texas executes Mexican Ramiro Hernandez-Llanas


    Hernandez-Llanas will be the second Texas prisoner executed this week

    A man who escaped from prison while serving a murder sentence in Mexico has been executed by the US state of Texas for a separate 1997 killing.

    Ramiro Hernandez-Llanas, 44, was in the US illegally
    when he killed a former university professor who had hired him to help with renovations on his home.


    The execution by lethal injection went ahead after Texas' parole and pardons board refused to delay his case.


    Hernandez-Llanas is the sixth Texas prisoner executed this year.


    He was the second person this week to be executed in the state
    by lethal injection with a new supply of pentobarbital.

    Earlier this week, a US appeals court rejected a bid by lawyers for Hernandez-Llanas and another death row inmate, Tommy Lynn Sells, to learn who is supplying Texas with the drug.

    They argue they need to know the source to ensure the executions will not be botched.


    But Texas officials have refused to identify the source of the sedative, saying secrecy is needed to protect the provider from threats of violence.


    Mental impairment
    claim

    Hernandez-Llanas was pronounced dead at 18:28 local time (23:28 GMT) at the Texas state death chamber in Huntsville.

    In a final statement, he asked forgiveness from the victim's family and said he was at peace, the Associated Press news agency reports.


    In 1997, Glen Lich, 49, hired Hernandez-Llanas to work for him to help renovate his ranch near the city of Kerrville.


    Unbeknownst to Lich, Hernandez-Llanas had recently escaped from a Mexican prison where he was serving a 25-year sentence for a 1989 murder.


    Several days later, Hernandez-Llanas lured Lich away from his house by telling him falsely there was a problem with a generator. He beat the man to death with a length of steel rebar, then entered the house and attacked Lich's wife.


    Sentenced in 2000 for Lich's murder, he was among more than four dozen Mexican nationals awaiting execution in the US in 2004 when the International Court of Justice in The Hague, Netherlands, ruled they had not been properly informed of their consular rights when arrested.


    Another one of those Mexican nationals, Edgar Tamayo, 46, was executed by Texas in January despite objections of both the Mexican and US governments.


    Euclides del Moral, a Mexico foreign ministry official, said on Tuesday "the execution of a Mexican national is of great concern".


    But the issue did not play a large part in Hernandez-Llanas' appeals, which focused primarily on claims that his mental impairment made him ineligible for the death penalty.

    TEXAS EXECUTES ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT FOR RAPING RANCHER'S WIFE AND KILLING HIM




    by BOB PRICE

    In 1996, Ramiro Hernandez Llanas was in a Mexican prison for bludgeoning a man to death. He escaped from prison and fled to the United States where he earned the death penalty for killing Kerrville, Texas rancher Glen Lich and then repeatedly raping Lich’s wife. At 6:28 p.m. April 9, Llanas was executed by the State of Texas.

    Breitbart Texas recently reported that Llanas attempted to stop his execution with an appeal to a federal district court in Houston. Activist Judge Vanessa Gillmore, a Bill Clinton appointee, granted the appeal and ordered Texas to halt the execution. Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott quickly appealed the judge’s decision to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals who reversed the judge’s decision, setting the stage for the execution.

    Lucy Wilke, Assistant District Attorney for Kerr County, Kerrville, Texas said in a phone interview with Breitbart Texas that she remembered the case quite well. She and District Attorney Bruce Curry co-prosecuted the crime committed against a local rancher, Glen Lich. Ramiro Hernandez Llanas was serving time in a Mexican prison for bludgeoning a man to death, according to Wilke. In 1996, she said, “he escaped from prison in Mexico and came directly into the United States.”

    Wilke confirmed his status as an illegal alien. Wilke confirmed that Mr. Lich was also bludgeoned to death with a crowbar by Llanas.

    “Llanas threatened to kill a jailer with a shank, but no one was hurt in the incident,” Wilke explained. She said he was convicted of the assault and sentenced to twenty years in prison.

    NBC News reported that after Llanas killed Mr. Lich, “He then ransacked the Lich residence and repeatedly sexually assaulted Lich's wife at knife-point."

    Mexico tried to halt the execution claiming that Texas has not met its international obligations concerning the treatment of foreign nationals taken into custody.

    In his final moments, Llanas expressed regret for his actions saying, “I am sorry for what I have done.” Referring to the family of Mr. Lich, Llanas stated, “To the family of my boss, I love you."

    The AP reported that on April 9, the Mexican government's Ministry of Foreign Affairs released a statement condemning the execution. "This is the fourth case of a Mexican being executed in clear violation of the judgment of the International Court of Justice," the ministry said. "The Government of Mexico expresses its most vigorous protest at the failure to comply."

    The first of the four cases mentioned by the Mexican Ministry was that of Jose Medellin who was executed in 2008 after then President George W. Bush joined forces with the World Court in an attempt to block his execution. Then-Texas Solicitor General, Ted Cruz, argued Texas’ case before the U.S. Supreme Court and won.

    The legal dose of the drugs were administered to Llanas who drifted off to sleep. He was pronounced dead after eleven minutes.

    It is the same sentence and US citizen would have gotten for a crime this premeditated and violent. Mexico can over it and keep its sex crazed murders at home. JMO
