TEXAS (USA): RAPHAEL HOLIDAY EXECUTED

November 18, 2015: Raphael Holiday, 36, Black, was executed for setting a fire that killed his 18-month-old daughter and her 2 young half-sisters 15 years ago.
The execution lasted 19 minutes, apparently with no problems.
Evidence and testimony showed Holiday was irate over a protective order his estranged wife obtained after his arrest for sexually assaulting one of the children. According to court records, he showed up at the home in the early hours of Sept. 6, 2000, and forced the girls' grandmother at gunpoint to douse the interior with gasoline. After it ignited, he sped away in the grandmother's car, hit a police car that arrived outside the cabin and then led officers on a chase that ended 2 counties away when he wrecked. Defense attorneys at his trial suggested an electrical problem or a pilot light started the blaze, killing Holiday's daughter, baby Justice, and her half-sisters, Tierra Lynch, 7, and Jasmine DuPaul, 5.
Holiday became the 13th inmate put to death this year in Texas, the531st inmate put to death in Texas since the state resumed capital punishment on Dec. 7, 1982, the 26th this year in the USA and the 1420th in the USA since the nation resumed executions on January 17, 1977.
Texas has accounted for 1/2 of all executions in the U.S. so far this year. (Sources: Associated Press & Rick Halperin, 18/11/2015)
