East Texas Death Row Inmate Resentenced To Life

Randall Wayne Mays


The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals resentenced Randall Mays, an intellectually disabled East Texan death row inmate, to life without the possibility of parole. They condemned Mays in 2008 for gunning down two Henderson County Deputies in Payne Springs. The Supreme Court had ruled that they could execute only people with an IQ above 70. Mays has an IQ of only 63. Benjamin Wolf with the Texas Office of Capital and Forensic Writs helped represent Mays and says they should use the death penalty on those who qualify.
