Ramiro Hernandez-Llanas was executed by the state of Texas tonight for beating a history professor to death with a metal bar in 1997, then raping the man's wife at knife point. Hernandez-Llanas committed the crime after escaping from prison in his native Mexico, where he was serving time for another murder.
The killer's lawyers claimed that Hernandez-Llanas suffered from a range of mental deficiencies including severe adaptive functioning, but judging from this photo, the killer had no problem at all adapting to prison food.
Because Texas no longer allows special last meals, the killer was served the same food as others in his unit. For his last meal, Hernandez-Llanas had chicken patties, mashed potatoes with country gravy, squash, navy beans, sliced bread, yellow cake with vanilla icing, and a choice of tea, punch, or water to drink.
