On death row for 31 years, inmate executed
from The Texas Tribune
A death row inmate who has proclaimed his innocence for three decades was executed Wednesday night in Huntsville. Lester Bower, 67, became the oldest death row inmate executed in Texas, after the U.S. Supreme Court declined to intervene in his case. After thanking his lawyers and family, he died from a lethal injection shortly after 6:30 p.m.
Bower was sent to death row 31 years ago after he was convicted in the 1983 fatal shootings of four men, including two law enforcement officers.
