HUNTSVILLE (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Fifteen years after a pair of North Texas road rage killings took Douglas Feldman off the streets and into a death row cell, the rage still appears to exist.

The 55-year-old Feldman is set for execution Wednesday evening in Huntsville.

Texas Department of Criminal Justice officials declined to make him available to reporters as his death date approached after one media session never even got under way because he ripped the telephone from the prison visiting cage.

It’s among 136 disciplinary cases Feldman’s has accumulated while on death row.

Feldman faces lethal injection for the shooting deaths of two truckers gunned down about 45 minutes apart on a Dallas-area freeway in August 1998. The shooting of a third man a week later led to Feldman’s arrest.

Feldman, a former financial analyst, testified at his 1999 trial that he shot 36-year-old Robert Everett after getting nearly run over on his motorcycle. He then shot 62-year-old Nicholas Velasquez in anger as the Exxon tanker driver from Irving was filling tanks at a Dallas gas station.

A federal appeals court rejected an appeal to the sentence last September.

Feldman’s appeal argued he had deficient legal help at his trial, that jury instructions were improper and a juror improperly was dismissed.
