A Texas man was executed for the death of a game warden during a 2007 shootout in Wharton County. James Freeeman shot and killed Justin Hurst following a 90-minute chase on country roads.
The 35-year-old was injected with a lethal dose of pentobarbital and died at 6:30 p.m. He declined to give a final statement.
It was the second execution carried out in Texas this year.
