Jose Villegas Executed Wednesday

Published on April 17, 2014 by Larry Crippen

Thirty-nine-year-old Jose Villegas was executed by lethal injection Wednesday in Huntsville. Villegas was convicted of fatally stabbing his girlfriend, 23-year-old Erida Salazar, her 3-year-old son Jacob and Erida Salazar’s 51-year-old mother, Alma, in Corpus Christi in 2001.

His attorneys’ plea to the Supreme Court, based on Villegas’ mental impairment, was rejected. He is the seventh prisoner to be executed in Texas in 2014.
