TEXAS – Jesse Joe Hernandez execution – march 28, EXECUTED 6.18 p.m


Jesse Joe Hernandez received lethal injection for the slaying of Karlos Borja (10 months old) 11 years ago.

“Tell my son I love him very much,” the 47-year-old Hernandez said before being put to death. “God bless everybody. Continue to walk with God.”

“Dile a mi hijo que  le quiero mucho”, dijo  Hernández de 47 años de edad, antes de ser condenado a muerte. “Dios bendiga a todo el mundo. Continúe caminando con Dios.”

As the drugs took effect, he repeated his appreciation for those he knew who had gathered to witness the execution. “Love y’all, man,” he said. “… Thank you. I can feel it, taste it. It’s not bad.”

He took about 10 deep breaths, which grew progressively weaker until he was no longer moving. Ten minutes later, at 6:18 p.m. CDT, he was pronounced dead.

The U.S. Supreme Court this afternoon rejected Jesse Hernandez’s request for a stay of execution, a court spokesman said.

(Los EE.UU. Corte Suprema de Justicia rechazó esta tarde, Jesse Hernández solicitud de suspensión de la ejecución, comento un portavoz del tribunal.)
The high court ruling came about two hours before the 47-year-old Hernandez, who previously was convicted of a child sex offense, could be taken to the Texas death chamber for lethal injection. The justices’ order was brief and did not include an explanation for their decision.

The Texas attorney general’s office opposed any delay, questioning whether the high court even had jurisdiction in the case because constitutional claims weren’t raised earlier in state courts.

Thomas Jones, an assistant attorney general, said jurors who sent Hernandez to death row probably would not have approved of a trial strategy that attempted to shift blame for the child’s death to the doctors treating him.

“Such an argument smacks of chutzpah,” Jones told the Supreme Court.

The decision clears the way for Texas to put Hernandez to death by injecting him with a series of drugs, including one often used to euthanize family pets. It will be the fourth execution of the year in Texas, the 12th in the United States.

Forty-seven-year-old Jesse Joe Hernandez is set for lethal injection Wednesday evening in Huntsville for the slaying of Karlos Borjas 11 years ago.

The child was brought to a Dallas hospital in April 2001 with a skull fracture and bruises to his head, thigh and abdomen. A week later, he was taken off life support and died. Hernandez’s DNA was found in Karlos’ blood on a pillowcase and on the child’s clothing.

Hernandez denied beating the children but later acknowledged to a detective he may have hit the boy with a flashlight.

Huntsville, Texas (AP) – La Corte Suprema de EE.UU. está considerando la posibilidad de bloquear la ejecución programada de un delincuente sexual sobre menores  condenado a muerte , por golpear  un niño de 10 meses de edad, cuando estaba de  niñera en una casa en Dallas.

Cuarenta y siete años de edad, Jesse Joe Hernández está listo para la inyección letal la noche del miércoles en Huntsville por el asesinato de Karlos Borjas, hace 11 años.
