Texas man executed for double slaying

Texas has executed a Fort Worth man convicted of opening fire with an assault rifle to gun down a woman and a friend after stalking her to collect a debt.
Thirty-four-year-old James Edward Martinez was pronounced dead at 6:17 p.m. Tuesday.
He was condemned for the 2000 fatal shootings of Sandra Walton, 29, whom he dated briefly, and Michael Humphreys, 19, a friend of the woman, outside her Fort Worth apartment complex.
Martinez was the 11th Texas inmate executed this year and the first of two set to die on consecutive nights this week.
