HUNTSVILLE (AP) – Jesse Joe Hernandez already was a convicted child sex offender when he was arrested for the horrendous beating death of a 10-month-old boy he was babysitting at a Dallas home.
Little Karlos Borjas had a skull fracture amid bruises to his head, thigh and abdomen when he was taken off life support after a week in a Dallas hospital. His 4-year-old sister also was attacked but survived injuries to her head, ear and right eye.
The 47-year-old Hernandez is set for execution Wednesday evening in Huntsville for the baby’s death 11 years ago.
His lawyers are appealing to the U.S. Supreme Court to stop the punishment.
The lethal injection would be the fourth this year in Texas.
