Self-styled "Natural-Born Killers"

I presided over this trial.

The jury gave an appropriate sentence IMHO.

Man convicted of killing deputy set for execution

By Michelle Mondo - Express-News

An execution date of March 11 has been set for an Indiana-native convicted of killing an off-duty Bexar County sheriff's deputy 10 years ago, according to the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.

Joshua Maxwell, 31, was convicted in 2002 for kidnapping, robbing and shooting Sgt. Rudy Lopes II in October 2000, according to the Bexar County district attorney's office.

Maxwell and his girlfriend, Tessie McFarland, were arrested in California after a nationwide crime spree during which an Indiana man was also slain.
