Texas: Execution carried out for 16-year-old crime

A 41-year-old man was executed in Texas for stabbing to death a real estate agent in Dallas more than 16 years ago.

This is the second execution in the state of Texas this year.

The AP reported that Kosol Chantakumane was administered a fatal injection at a Huntsville prison.

In July 2006, he was convicted of murdering Sarah Walker, a 40-year-old mother of two.

Walker’s body was discovered in a residence in McKinney, approximately 50 kilometers north of Dallas, with over thirty stab wounds.

As the powerful sedative pentobarbital was administered into both of Chantakumane’s arms, he looked at his mother, who was observing the execution, and said, “Mom, I love you.”

Although none of the victim’s family members were present for the execution in Texas, the convict prayed that his death would bring them peace.

In July 2006, Chantakuman allegedly entered the residence of a model where Walker, a real estate agent, was staying and repeatedly stabbed her before stealing a Rolex watch and a silver ring, which were never recovered.

Chantakumane confirmed he was in the residence, but merely to sip water. After doing jail time in North Carolina for kidnapping and robbery, he was on parole at the time.
