Juan Martin Garcia was executed by the state of Texas tonight for his part in the robbery and murder of a former missionary, a crime which netter Garcia and his accomplices a whopping $8.
“If it’s God’s will, it’s God’s will,” said Garcia shortly before his death, apparently resigned to his fate. Garcia claimed to be at peace with his fate, and said he would face his execution bravely.
Because Texas no longer allows special last meal requests, Garcia was served the same food as others in his unit. For his last meal, Juan Garcia had chicken and rice casserole, green beans, corn, ranch style beans, cornbread, and a choice of tea, punch, or water to drink.
