HUNTSVILLE, Texas (AP) — Mexican national Ramiro Hernandez-Llanas already had done some carpentry work at Glen Lich's ranch near Kerrville in the Texas Hill Country when he negotiated a deal with the former Baylor University history professor to live on the property in exchange for helping out with ranch renovations.


Ten days later, Lich was fatally clubbed with a metal bar outside his home and his wife was attacked by a man covered with blood and threatening her with a knife. Hernandez-Llanas was arrested, still sleeping in the bed where he had wrapped his arm around Lich's terrorized wife, but unaware the woman summoned police after managing to flee from his grasp and restraints without waking him.


n Wednesday, Hernandez-Llanas, 44, was set for lethal injection Scissors-32x32.png

Study finds Southern Death Row inmates more likely to apologize at execution

By Carol Christian | April 9, 2014


Being Southern apparently means having to say you're sorry, even if you don't really mean it, especially at death's door.

The last words of Death Row prisoners executed in the South more often included apologies for their crimes than did final statements of inmates in other U.S. regions, but the prisoners were not necessarily more remorseful, according to research by a Canadian psychologist.

Judy Eaton, associate professor of psychology at Wilfrid Laurier University in Brantford, Ontario, studied final statements of 279 white males and 231 nonwhite males executed in the United States between January 2000 and December 2011.

Her research, "Honor on Death Row: Apology, Remorse, and the Culture of Honor in the U.S. South," is published in the April 2014 issue of SAGE Open, an open-access online publication for academic research. Scissors-32x32.png
