New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - June 13, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas y lf '¥ VWaSSftVf'# i Herald-Zeitung □ Friday, June 13, 1997 □ 7A Texas leads nation in carrying out executions By MICHAEL GRACZYK Associated Press Writer HUNTSVILLE (AP) — Less than six months into 1997, Texas already has set a record for ecuted Wednesday sets Texas record as No. 21 executions in a single year. Convicted killer Earl Behringer Wednesday evening became the 21st condemned inmate this year put to death when he received a lethal injection for for killing a couple at a Tarrant County lovers’ lane during a $15 robbery. That topped the previous mark of 20 executions carried out in 1935 when the state used the electric chair as its method of capital punishment. Behringer, 33, who in a lengthy final statement mentioned the Dallas Cowboys among those he wanted to thank, was punished for it seemed like an easy death, considering the violent way he killed Brennon and Janet. I’m glad ifs over and we have peace of mind knowing he won’t kill anyone again.’ — Catherine Meyer, mother of murder victim the Sept. 14, 1986 shooting deaths of Daniel Meyer Jr., 22, of Everman, and Meyer’s fiance, Janet Hancock, 21, of Mansfield. Texas, with 128 executions, leads the nation in carrying out capital punishment and accounts for more than one-third of all executions in the United States since the Supreme Court in 1976 allowed the death penalty to resume. This year’s unprecedented total stems from a combination of factors, including longtime inmates exhausting their appeals, new laws limiting appeals and court rejection of a challenge to the Texas death penalty law that contributed to a lull in executions last year. “It’s a good day to die,” Behringer said, speaking firmly and quickly while strapped to the death chamber gurney. “I walked in here like a man and I am leaving a man. I had a good life.” He thanked and expressed love to his family and friends, then turned his head to six members of his victims’ families standing a few feet away and said he was sorry. “If my death gives you any peace, so be it,” Behringer said. He said he had confessed his sins, had been baptized and was going home to Jesus, then added, “I’m thankful to the Dallas Cowboys for giving me a lot of enjoyment these past years.” Seven minutes later, he was pronounced dead. “It seemed like an easy death for him considering the violent way he killed Brennon and Janet,” Catherine Meyer, whose son was fatally shot, said. “I’m glad ifs over and we have peace of mind knowing he won’t kill anyone again.” pMPPPl I rn I N I \V B KAU N I I I S & SURROUNDING A R I A 651 South Walnut 608-0017 John B.
