Texas man condemned for icepick slaying gets execution date
HOUSTON (AP) - A 66-year-old Texas man on death row for the icepick slaying of a 20-year-old woman in Houston in 1979 has been set for execution.
Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg says a judge has signed an order setting Danny Bible for lethal injection June 27 in Huntsville.
Bible faces execution for killing Inez Deaton. Evidence showed she went to his house in Houston to use a telephone and later was found stabbed 11 times, raped, and dumped on the bank of a bayou. Her killing went unsolved for nearly two decades until his arrest in Fort Myers, Florida, for a Louisiana rape.
He told authorities about killing Deaton in Houston and a woman and her baby west of Fort Worth in North Texas. Records show he's confessed to four killings.
