Texas Man Executed for Killing Man in Botched Robbery

Condemned Texas killer Stephen Moody has been executed for the shooting death of a Houston man during a robbery 18 years ago.

The 52-year-old Moody had asked that no last-minute appeals be filed to try to block his lethal injection Wednesday evening. It was the 17th execution this year in the nation's busiest death penalty state. Two more Texas inmates are set to die next week.

The U.S. Supreme Court refused to review Moody's case last year, ending a series of appeals. Moody said he was satisfied and was ready to die for fatally shooting 28-year-old Joseph Hall while robbing him of $2,000 at Hall's home in 1991.
