A former San Antonio rapper has been executed for an attack and robbery more than 15 years ago.
Ray Jasper was executed on Wednesday evening by lethal injection. He was convicted in the stabbing death of a music engineer in San Antonio in 1998.
A spokesperson for the Texas Criminal Justice Department said they'd acquired a new batch of pentobarbital. The lethal injection drug, that was used, came from the state's previous supply. A new acquired supply of the drug will be used for executions starting at the beginning of April.
