Convicted double-killer Terry Edwards was executed by the state of Texas tonight for his part in the slaying of two employees at a Subway sandwich shop in 2002. Edwards had formerly worked at the Dallas restaurant, but was fired for stealing money from the cash register. A few weeks later, the disgruntled Edwards returned to the Subway with his cousin to rob the place. During the course of that robbery, the two employees on duty were both shot in the head and killed.
After he was arrested, Edwards first tried to blame the murders on a mysterious man named “T-bone.” But audio recordings from the time of the arrest tell a different story, as Edwards is heard remarking, “Man, I done fucked up this time. Man, I fucked up big time. Got two mother fucking murders.”
Because Texas no longer offers special last meals, Edwards ate the same food as others in his unit today. For his last meal, Edwards had Salisbury steak, macaroni and cheese, mixed vegetables, mixed greens, pinto beans, corn bread, and sliced bread, with a choice of water, tea, or punch to drink.
