The man known as the “ice pick killer,” whose victims included two in Parker County and one in Palo Pinto County, was put to death by lethal injection Wednesday night in Huntsville.
66-year-old Danny Paul Bible’s attorneys had asked for either a firing squad or gas, saying the likelihood of a botched execution by injection was very high because of his medical condition. The Supreme Court denied his appeal yesterday.
Bible was a serial rapist and murderer. Among Bible’s several victims are Tracy Powers and her 4-month-old son, Justin, killed in Parker County in May of 1983, as well as her roommate, Pam Hudgins, killed on the same day in Palo Pinto County.
