A Texas man convicted of killing his girlfriend was executed on Halloween night, using his last words to make a final plea of remorse.
‘I'm really sorry.
'I never meant to cause you all so much pain,’ Donnie Lee Roberts said to Vicki Bowen's father, who was seated in a chair close to a glass window in the death chamber viewing area.
‘I loved your daughter. I hope to God he lets me see her in heaven so I can apologize to her and see her and tell her.’
Roberts, 41, was convicted of fatally shooting Bowen in 2003 and taking items from her home to sell or trade to support his drug habit.
He became the 12th inmate to be put to death this year in the nation's most active capital punishment state, and he died via lethal injection.
Roberts also asked two of his friends who watched through another window to tell his own daughter he loved her. He repeated that he was sorry and took several deep breaths as the lethal dose of phenobarbital began taking effect.
