Texas gets there first

And the winner is…Texas.

The US state became the first to carry out an execution – by lethal injection – in 2018.

Anthony Allen Shore, 55, was found guilty of the 1992 murder of a 21 year-old woman.

As part of his last statement Shore, whose lawyers argued in appeal that he’d been brain-damaged in childhood,  said: “I wish I could undo the past, but it is what it is.”
