    Texas executes man who raped, killed 93-year-old

    HUNTSVILLE, Texas - A man who raped and murdered a 93-year-old woman in her Dallas-area home was executed Wednesday after he apologized to his victim's relatives.

    "I'm sorry for what I did," William Murray told two nephews of Rena Ratcliff who watched him through a window in the death chamber. "I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me. The Lord has forgiven me."

    Yes, now he is before the real judge. Too bad it took ten years of money wasting appeals to send him there. And, I pray that in prison he found salvation through grace.
