Texas executes inmate who killed guard in prison escape attempt

AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) - Texas executed by lethal injection on Tuesday a man convicted of slamming a pickup truck into a mounted correctional officer in a prison escape attempt in 2007, knocking her off the horse and killing her.

Jerry Martin, 43, was pronounced dead at 6:27 p.m. U.S. Central Time (2427 GMT) at a state prison in Huntsville, Texas, according to a spokesman for the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.
