No Doughnuts for Doyle, Only Death

Convicted killer Anthony Doyle was executed by the state of Texas tonight for a robbery/murder that took place in 2003. Doyle had ordered two dozen doughnuts and two dozen breakfast tacos from a take-out service, then beat the delivery woman to death with a baseball bat when she brought the order to his home. Afterward, the killer stole the victim's car, phone, and credit cards. Doyle dumped the body and cleaned up the crime scene--including trying to disguise the blood stains with barbecue sauce--but he was quickly arrested and given the death penalty at his trial.

Because Texas no longer allows special last meal orders, Doyle was given the same food as others in his unit. For his last meal, Doyle had a chicken patty, mashed potatoes with country gravy, navy beans, mixed vegetables, sliced bread, and he had a choice of tea, punch, or water to drink.
