A Texas Death Row inmate slated to receive a lethal injection in less than two weeks has asked for a delay so he can donate a kidney. They condemned 29-year-old Ramiro Gonzales for murdering an 18-year-old Southwest Texas girl. He was determined to be an “excellent candidate” for donation after being evaluated by the transplant team at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. He has a scarce blood type. The Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles votes Monday, July 11, on Gonzales’ request.
