Lewis was convicted of breaking into the home of George Newman, 50, in rural Smith County, shooting him to death and raping his fiancee, KHOU-TV, Houston, reported Wednesday.
The execution Tuesday evening in Huntsville came after the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear Lewis' case last week and the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles unanimously voted against a request of clemency. There were also no last-day appeals to halt the execution by Lewis' lawyers, the television station noted.
