Texas to execute man for killing three in fire
Texas inmate raphael holiday is set for lethal injection Wednesday evening for setting fire to a log cabin and killing his toddler daughter and her two young half-sisters 15 years ago. it’s a crime he says he did not commit.
“i loved my kids,” holiday, 36, said recently from a visiting cage outside Texas’ death row. “i never would do harm to any of them.”
A jury found him responsible for the fatal blaze, however. holiday would be the 13th prisoner executed this year in Texas, which carries out the death penalty more than any other state, and 26th convict executed this year.
