HUNTSVILLE, Texas (AP) -- A man blamed for numerous killings and rapes has been executed in Texas for the murder of a woman who was raped, beaten and left to die on a Houston street.
Fifty-one-year-old Johnny Ray Johnson was pronounced dead at 6:19 p.m. Thursday.
A Harris County jury sent Johnson to death row for the 1995 murder of 41-year-old Leah Joette Smith.
According to court documents, her murder was one of at least five rape-slayings in Houston and Austin that were linked to the former truck and taxi driver. He also was linked at least eight other rapes beginning in the late 1970s. AP Obama
