Texas on Tuesday executed its 452nd person since 1982, the 213th person since Governor Rick Perry took office in 2000 and the 5th in 2010.

From the New York Times:

Franklin Dewayne Alix was executed Tuesday evening for fatally shooting a Houston man during a robbery.
Alix, 34, received lethal injection for the slaying of 23-year-old Eric Bridgeford, who interrupted Alix as he robbed the apartment of Bridgeford’s sister. The sister also had been abducted and raped in what authorities said was part of a six-month series of crimes by Alix more than 11 years ago.
The execution was the fifth this year in Texas, the nation’s busiest capital punishment state.
”I’m not the monster they painted me to be,” Alix said from the death chamber gurney, saying he ”messed up and made poor choices.” He denied responsibility for several rapes and said he ”did no drugs.”
”It is what it is,” he said. ”I’ve got peace in my heart.”
Seven minutes later, at 6:20 p.m. CDT, he was pronounced dead.
