Killer Of Mentally Impaired Arlington Woman Set To Die Tuesday

HUNTSVILLE (AP) – Two North Texas men looking for an adrenaline rush by committing a murder tried a pellet gun and then a crossbow before switching to a rifle to kill their 19-year-old mentally challenged victim.

Michael Hall and Robert Neville later bragged about using Amy Robinson as target practice.

On Tuesday, exactly 13 years since Robinson was abducted as she rode her bike to work at an Arlington supermarket, Hall is set to die for her slaying.  A Tarrant County judge set the date last November.

Hall would be the first convicted killer executed this year in Texas. His partner, Neville, was executed five years ago in Huntsville.

Hall’s lawyers argued he was mentally impaired and ineligible for execution, but courts rejected their appeals and the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles last week refused a clemency request.

    Wasted too much money on these two. As soon they were convicted they should’ve been marched in the back, forced to dig a ditch then shot in the same way they did to that girl.
