Carlton Turner - Texas Death Row - Scheduled Execution for July 10, 2008

Victims: HIS PARENTS Carlton Turner Sr., 43, and his mother, Tonya Turner, 40

The Crime: Turner was 19 when authorities said he shot his father, Carlton Turner Sr., 43, and his mother, Tonya Turner, 40, several times in the head. He then bought new clothes and jewelry and continued living in the family's home in Irving. Prosecutors said Turner had dragged the bodies through the house before dumping them in the garage, then cleaned up the blood and had friends over for a party.

A foul smell led police to the bodies in the garage three days after the killings.

News: HUNTSVILLE, Texas (AP) - Attorneys for Texas death row inmate Carlton Turner have asked the U.S. Supreme Court to delay his execution scheduled for tonight.

Turner's to die for the 1998 slayings of his parents at their suburban Dallas home. Justices stopped his execution once before when they stayed his death 10 months ago while they considered an appeal on the constitutionality of lethal injections.

When the court upheld the method earlier this year, Turner's execution was reset for Thursday.

He'd be the second Texas inmate executed this year. At least a dozen others are set to die over the next few months, including two more this month.

Turner acknowledges fatally shooting his adoptive parents, Carlton Turner Sr. and Tonya Turner, at the family home in Irving. He made matters worse by telling the jury at his trial that it didn't matter to him if they gave him life in prison or death.

Now, he says he's sorry for the shootings, which he said were prompted by anger and hatred. He says he shot his adoptive father in self-defense after repeated instances of abuse, then killed his mother because he felt she "couldn't live without my father."

-----------------------

HUNTSVILLE, Texas Texas executed death row inmate Carlton Turner for the slayings of his parents a decade ago at their suburban Dallas home.

The execution was carried out Thursday night after the U.S. Supreme Court refused to issue a reprieve.

Turner was the second Texas inmate executed this year. At least 14 others are set to die over the next few months, including two more this month.

Turner acknowledged fatally shooting his adoptive parents, then making things worse by telling the jury at his trial that it didn't matter to him if they gave him life in prison or death.


Last Meal: Five pieces of fried chicken, two cheese and onion omelets and a piece of chocolate cake

Final Statement: "I've been sorry for the last 10 years. I wish you could accept my apology," he said to an uncle who watched impassively through a window. "I know you can't give your forgiveness. It's OK. I understand. I know I caused a lot of pain."

Turner said he hoped his family could come to terms with what he did. "I accept the responsibility. I take this penalty as a man. I am sorry."

Full statement coming soon..........

 Interview with a condemned man: Carlton A. Turner
More anti propaganda!

He killed his parents, admits he killed his parents but says it wasn't him because he blacked out so he shouldn't be culpable?? Time is coming soon for his anti-crime vaccine and then he won't have to worry about blacking out again and continuing to harm innocents!

-----------------------------
Carlton, can you tell us about your conviction and how long you have been on death row? Are you guilty?

I have been convicted of Capital murder for the killing of 2 people in the process of robbery, of this charge I am not guilty. The first death came from a volatile situation which could have went either way in the end. Both were aggressors and defenders. I had the upper hand of the situation and happened to live. Either way, someone was to die at that moment. The second death was from psychological conditioning and stress. To put it simple, I blacked out as a controller of my actions. I knew what I was doing, but was not in control of my body until it was over. The taking of money was an afterthought. I knew this was the end so it did not matter whether money was stolen or not. The owners were no longer alive, so there was no sense in letting the state take it in the end. As harsh as it sounds, but my mentality at the time told me they wouldn't need it now and I needed a bit at the moment. It's not like I put it towards any long term investments and tried to get away with it. So, I am not guilty of Capital murder, but I am guilty of murder and robbery as an afterthought. If you still want to call that Capital murder, then that's just fine. It's all about perception. It doesn't change the fact that I have killed people.

Skoo B Doggie Dawg... Skoo B Doggie Dawg
From the bowels of the Walls, I'll be scratching my itch
When I get on the gurney I'll be crying like a biatch
At Polunsky I tried to be well read
Here at the Walls well I'll just be dead.
No more women to write, no more art to sell
Soon all I will know is livin in hell.

What's my name?
Skoo B Doggie Dawgggggg Skoo B Doggie Dawg.
