Brownsville death row inmate who won stay last year now scheduled for execution in July

 A Texas death row inmate who won a stay of execution last year after a last-minute change of attorney is now scheduled to die in July, according to a prison spokesman.

Ruben Gutierrez, who has long professed his innocence in a 1998 screwdriver murder, was last scheduled to be put to death in September 2018. But the courts called off the date after his attorney at the time asked to be removed from the case, and the new lawyers realized they needed additional time to investigate possible appeals.

This year, a Cameron County judge signed off on a July 31 death date, making Gutierrez the next man slated for execution in the Lone Star State.:snip:
