HOUSTON (AP) - A San Antonio man sent to death row for killing a woman during a burglary attempt 13 years ago has received an execution date for this summer.
Texas Department of Criminal Justice spokesman Jason Clark said Monday the agency has received court documents setting 46-year-old Taichin Preyor for lethal injection July 27.
Preyor was scheduled for execution last year, also in July, but the date was withdrawn.
Preyor was condemned in 2005 for fatally slashing and stabbing 20-year-old Jami Tackett. Her boyfriend also was wounded in what trial testimony showed was a drug-related attack at her San Antonio apartment.
Evidence showed Preyer was spattered with the victims' blood when he was arrested at the murder scene. He'd returned there to look for car keys he believed he left behind.
