Willie Pondexter Jr. - Texas Death Row - Scheduled Execution for March 3, 2009

Victims: Martha Lennox

The Crime: Willie Pondexter was convicted of burglarizing the home of 85-year-old Martha Lennox and fatally shooting her in the head. Lennox was sleeping when Pondexter and at least one accomplice broke into her home, shot her, then took $18 from her purse and fled in her car.

News: Texas has executed an Oklahoma man convicted of shooting an 85-year-old woman to death during a burglary in far northeast Texas.

Thirty-four-year-old Willie Pondexter was pronounced dead at 6:18 p.m. Tuesday. He was one of two men condemned for the murder of Martha Lennox at her home in Clarksville.

Pondexter was the ninth Texas inmate executed this year and the first of two scheduled to die on consecutive nights in Huntsville.

Last Meal: Fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, biscuits, peach cobbler and lemonade.

Final Statement: Well, first I want to say. They may execute me but they can't punish me because they can't execute an innocent man. I am not mad. Jack Herrington, I am not mad. You were given a job to do but that's neither here nor there. I am not mad. I am disappointed by the courts. I feel like I was upset and let down by them. But that's O.K. I just played the hand that life dealt me. Look at my life and learn from it. I am very remorseful about what I did. I apologize. To my kids, Daddy loves you. Irene Wilcox, Thank you. It's been a long journey. Thank you for being there. Tell Jack hello. I know I am wrong but I am asking ya'll to forgive me.
