Over 200 TDCJ correctional officers gathered outside the Walls Unit last night as 43-year-old Jerry Martin was executed by lethal injection for the 2007 murder of officer Susan Canfield during an escape. A large photo of Ms. Canfield was on display at the front door steps of the prison.
The officers were there to support the Canfield family. More than 1,000 officers attended Canfield’s funeral.
Martin was pronounced dead at 6:27 PM.
