Miguel Angel Flores, 31, was executed by lethal injection on 9 November in Huntsville, Texas for the murder of a 20-year-old woman.
In June 1989, Angela Marie Tyson was closing the Borger video rental store where she was working that summer when Miguel Flores entered and abducted her at knifepoint. Flores forced Tyson into her car and took her to a remote area where he raped her. He then took her back into town, where he parked the car and talked to her for several minutes. When she began screaming, Flores stabbed her with a pocket knife six times in the chest and four times in the back. He then left his victim in her car and fled the scene.
When Flores learned that police were looking for him, he turned himself in and confessed to the crime. Court testimony showed that Flores was infatuated with Angela Tyson and visited the video store frequently on nights she was working there. He was found guilty of capital murder and sentenced to death by a jury.
