Serial killer Tommy Lynn Sells was executed by the state of Texas tonight after his last-minute appeal fell through. Sells hoped to delay his execution based on the fact that nobody knows where Texas got its new supply of lethal pentobarbital, but apparently that missing morsel of information wasn't enough to tempt the U.S. Supreme Court.
Sells earned his death penalty by stabbing a 13-year-old girl to death in 1999, but he may have committed as many as 70 more murders.
Since Texas no longer allows special last meals, condemned inmates are given the same food as others in their unit. For his last meal, Tommy Lynn Sells had BBQ chopped brisket, chilled pasta salad, peas and carrots, sliced pickles, sliced bread, and he had a choice of tea, punch, or water to drink.
