A Texas man convicted in the shooting death of a 21-year-old man in 1992 was executed Tuesday in
Huntsville, officials said.
Marvin Wilson was pronounced dead at 6:27 p.m. (7:27 p.m. ET), the Texas Department of Criminal Justice said.

Wilson’s IQ had been measured at 61, according to the American Civil Liberties Union of Texas, which opposed the execution.

In an online posting, the ACLU said Wilson, 54, had been declared “intellectually disabled” by a court appointed neuropsychologist.
“Despite all the signs of Mr. Wilson’s intellectual disabilities and the diagnosis of the court-appointed neuropsychologist, the District Court of Jefferson County (Texas) concluded that Mr. Wilson is not mentally retarded,” the ACLU posting said, with “not” italicized for emphasis.

Before he was put to death by injection, Wilson made a final statement in which he said, “Ya’ll do understand that I came here a sinner and leaving a saint. Take me home, Jesus, take me home, Lord.” Wilson was convicted in the shooting death of Jerry Robert Williams in Beaumont Texas. According to the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, Williams was abducted and shot after a “physical confrontation” between the two men.

  1. Glory be to God that Wilson died as a saint. Oh Lord! Grant me mercy to see and know you clearly before I take my leave away from this sinful planet- earth.
