Texas Rapper Ray Jasper Set For Execution
Texas is set to execute on Wednesday an aspiring rap musician who was convicted of slitting the throat and stabbing to death a music studio owner in San Antonio so that he could rob him of equipment.
The state, which executes more people than any other in the United States, plans to execute Ray Jasper, 33, at 6 p.m. CDT by lethal injection at its death chamber in Huntsville.
Jasper was convicted of the 1998 killing of David Alejandro, 33, who owned and operated a studio where musicians could be professionally recorded for a fee.
Jasper and two friends recorded at the studio for about two hours and then took out knives to attack Alejandro.
