The U.S. Supreme Court, without comment, refused to stop the scheduled execution of a condemned Northeast Texas inmate. 46 year old Daniel Clate Acker of Sulphur Springs insisted he didn’t fatally run over his girlfriend in a jealous rage more than 18 years ago. He was put to death Thursday night for the murder of 32 year old Marquetta “Markie” George in 2000. He gave no final statement and did not acknowledge George’s brother, who witnessed the execution. Acker was pronounced dead at 6:25, about 14 minutes after the lethal drugs began flowing into his veins.
