ON THURSDAY, THE state of Texas will kill Robert Pruett.

The 38-year-old has been behind bars since he was 15.

He was arrested in 1995 as an accomplice in his father’s murder of a neighbor; five years later, a prison guard who had given him a disciplinary infraction for eating a sandwich in a hallway was found stabbed to death. Although he continues to maintain that he is innocent, multiple witnesses claimed that Pruett was responsible, and he was sentenced to death for the crime.    :snip:

Texas attorneys brace for new round of death penalty appeals after intellectual disability ruling

By Brian Rogers

October 11, 2017 Updated: October 11, 2017 8:21pm

Tomas Gallo smiled and laughed as Harris County jurors decided his fate for the rape and murder of his girlfriend's 3-year-old daughter.

Gallo had covered the girl's body with bruises and bite marks before sexually assaulting and bludgeoning her while her mother was at work just a few days before Christmas in 2001. He then cleaned up the blood-spattered bathroom, dressed the child in clean clothes and called her mother to say the girl was not breathing.

Jurors agreed he should be sentenced to death, despite his lawyers' arguments that he was intellectually disabled.

Now, however, Gallo and at least nine other death row inmates from across Texas - including five others from Harris County - are seeking to have their death sentences thrown out in exchange for life in prison under a ruling earlier this year by the U.S. Supreme Court that changed how Texas determines intellectual disability.     :snip:   http://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/Texas-attorneys-brace-for-new-round-of-death-12271127.php?utm_campaign=btfpm
