HUNTSVILLE, Texas -- A Texas man was put to death Wednesday evening for killing his parents at their Lubbock home 15 years ago during a drug-influenced rampage that also left his 89-year-old grandmother dead.
Michael Yowell, 43, told witnesses, including his daughters, that he loved them.
"Punch the button," he told the warden.
He was pronounced dead 19 minutes later at 7:11 p.m. CDT.
U.S. officials could not immediately be reached.
