HUNTSVILLE, Texas — Proclaiming his innocence, condemned prisoner Gregory Wright was executed Thursday evening for the fatal stabbing and robbery of a Dallas-area woman who tried to help him when he was homeless.
"There's been a lot of confusion who done this," Wright said from the death chamber gurney.
Then, as he has for years, he declared a fellow homeless man, John Adams, was responsible for the murder of Donna Vick.
"I never sold anything to anyone. My only act or involvement was not telling on him. John Adams was the one that killed Donna Vick. The evidence proves that. ... I was in the bathroom when he attacked. I ran into the bedroom. By the time I came in, when I tried to help her with first aid it was too late."
He said an innocent man was being put to death and said he loved his family. "I'll be waiting on y'all. I am finished talking."
Nine minutes after the lethal drugs began to flow, he was pronounced dead at 6:20 p.m. CDT. Source.
