Texas is ready to carry out their 4th execution this year, with convicted murderer Anthony Doyle on Thursday. Doyle was convicted of beating a delivery woman to death with a baseball bat. The woman, Hyun Cho was from South Korea, and was killed at the age of 29 back in 2003.
In a callous disregard for human life the accused allegedly tossed her body in the trash then stole her car. Doyle is scheduled to die by lethal injection this evening at 6pm.
Many states struggle to keep up with Texas on their executions due to a shortage of the medication required for the lethal injections.
If the execution is successful Doyle will be the 4th person in Texas to die by lethal injection this year in Texas, and the 512th in the state since the death penalty was reinstated in 1976
