HUNTSVILLE — In a rambling final statement that alternated between English and Spanish, Yosvanis “El Cubano” Valle apologized Tuesday for the 1999 robbery-murder of Houston drug dealer Jose Junco and assured his family he was ready to die for his crime.
“I am sorry with all my heart,” he said moments before the lethal drugs began to flow. “That's the reality of life. I am sorry. I got to pay for it.”
Turning to face the witness chamber containing members of his family, Valle said, “I love you, be strong. ... Thank you, brother, don't hate nobody. I feel good. I love my family. I love you, Jesus. Be strong, Mama.”
Then, addressing prison warden Charles O'Reilly, he said, “I am ready.”
Valle continued speaking in Spanish, halting only when the deadly drugs were administered at 6:12 p.m. He was pronounced dead nine minutes later. Chron
