HUNTSVILLE (AP) – A North Texas man convicted in the fatal shooting of a teenager during a carjacking outside a nightclub 12 years ago has been executed.

Forty-year-old Ronnie Threadgill received lethal injection Tuesday evening in Huntsville less than two hours after the U.S. Supreme Court rejected a last-day appeal.

Threadgill expressed love to friends and supporters and said he was “going to a better place.”

He was pronounced dead almost 30 minutes later.

Attorneys for the 40-year-old Threadgill argued his case deserved review because he had deficient legal help during his 2002 capital murder trial when he was sentenced to die for the killing of 17-year-old Dexter McDonald.

State attorneys contended the appeal was only an attempt to delay the punishment.

The execution is the third this year in Texas.
