AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) - Texas is scheduled to execute inmate John Manuel Quintanilla Jr. on Tuesday for the 2002 murder of a man during the robbery of a gaming room.
Quintanilla, 36, is scheduled to die by lethal injection after 6 p.m. local time (CST) in Huntsville, Texas.
Quintanilla, a habitual criminal with six burglary convictions on his record, was sentenced to die for the shooting death of Victor Billings in Victoria, Texas, about 120 miles southwest of Houston, in November 2002.
