San Antonio cop killer finally gets date with needle
HUNTSVILLE, Texas (AP) — Former San Antonio street gang member Frank Garcia was executed Thursday evening for fatally shooting a veteran police officer who was trying to resolve a domestic dispute that also left Garcia's wife dead.
The 39-year-old Garcia repeatedly shouted "Hallelujah" and "Thank you Yahweh!" and loudly rambled and sang. "For this reason I was born and raised," he shouted, raising his head off the death chamber gurney pillow. "Thank you for this miracle you are performing in my life. My God is holy, holy, holy. Hallelujah!"
