HUNTSVILLE, Texas, April 30 (UPI) -- Convicted killer Rodolfo Hernandez was executed Tuesday for killing an undocumented immigrant during a robbery 17 years ago. Hernandez was within hours of execution last month when he was granted a 30-day stay by Gov. Rick Perry so San Antonio police could question him about several unsolved murders.
