Texas man put to death for delivery woman slaying
HUNTSVILLE, Texas (AP) — A Dallas-area man was executed Thursday evening in Texas for the robbery and slaying of a woman who was attacked while delivering food to his parents’ home 11 years ago.
Anthony Doyle, 29, was given a lethal injection for the 2003 death of Hyun Mi Cho, who was beaten with a baseball bat, then robbed of her car, cellphone and credit cards. Evidence showed Doyle ordered the doughnuts and breakfast tacos that the 37-year-old Cho delivered. He shared the food with friends after stuffing the woman’s body in a neighbor’s trash can in an alley behind the home in Rowlett, a suburb just east of Dallas.
Doyle was pronounced dead at 6:49 p.m. — 25 minutes after being injected with the sedative pentobarbital. He became the fourth Texas inmate executed this year and the last before the state — the nation’s most active when it comes to capital punishment — begins using a new batch of pentobarbital obtained through a different pharmacy.
Prison officials have refused to reveal the source of the replenished stockpile, arguing the information must be kept secret to protect the supplier’s safety. But a judge Thursday ordered them to disclose the supplier to attorneys for two inmates set to be executed next month. The attorneys filed a lawsuit Wednesday seeking an emergency order requiring state authorities to identify the drug provider and results of tests of its potency and purity.
The prison agency plans to appeal the judge’s order.
About two hours before Doyle was put to death, the U.S. Supreme Court rejected a last-day appeal to block his execution. Doyle’s attorney had called for his execution to be delayed, but not over the drug issue. The lawyer said Doyle deserved a new punishment hearing because jurors at his 2004 capital murder trial were given unknowingly false evidence about Doyle’s inability to be rehabilitated while he was confined at a juvenile detention facility for his delinquent behavior years before Cho’s slaying.

It took 25 minutes from the time of the injection until this scumbag was pronounced dead. I hope it HURT! I hope it hurt a lot.
Now here’s what Amnesty International had to say a couple of days ago:
If Anthony Doyle had been 93 days younger at the time of the crime, he would not be facing execution. In Roper v. Simmons in 2005, the US Supreme Court outlawed the death penalty against defendants who were under 18 at the time of the crime. SOURCE
I guess you can’t expect anything else from a bunch of bleeding heart tree huggers and Obama lovers.
Regardless, now the son of a bitch is D E A D DEAD!
This murder happened right here in Rowlett, Texas, my home town, a decent community, a community of mostly good people that look out for each other and help each other through thick and thin.
Once in a while, no matter how great your community is you will still get a few of what I like to call *undesirables*, and that was what happened 11 years ago, Doyle was one of the people you don’t want in your neighborhood, but what the hell can you do about it?
Rowlett is still a great town, led by good and decent men and women and populated by the same type of people, well, for the most part.
In the 10 years we have called Rowlett home I have seen an increase is the *undesirable* of the world. They have no particular age, race or sex, they are undesirable because of their own actions and lifestyles.
The Rowlett Police are to be commended for the job they do in keeping this city safe and they are again to be commended for capturing Doyle and making a case against him a few year ago.
