HUNTSVILLE (AP) – Convicted killer Carl Blue never disputed filling a convenience store drink cup with gasoline, tossing it on his former girlfriend at the door of her Bryan apartment and setting her ablaze.

Carmen Richards-Sanders died of her horrific burns in September 1994. Now the 48-year-old Blue is facing execution Thursday evening in Huntsville for her death.

He contended the fire was a misplayed prank. His lawyers argued the 38-year-old woman’s death shouldn’t have been capital murder.

A man at Richards-Sanders’ apartment also was set on fire but survived. He testified against Blue.

Blue’s attorney was in the federal courts Wednesday trying to delay the lethal injection. He argues it was an improper conflict of interest for one of Blue’s trial lawyers to also represent Blue in earlier stages of his appeals.
