Berkley would be the sixth Texas inmate to receive lethal injection this year in the nation's busiest death penalty state.

If he is claiming innocence and says the truth will come out who is he implicating. His accomplice? Perhaps all this time on death row (8 years) has made him believe he didn't do it!

he should be put to death like rabid dog. why waste money on this slime to live in prison. some ppl are so stupid.

I think they should punish criminals via an eye for an eye. This guy should get shot in the face and then unload the rest on him like he did to his victim. They can spare raping this thug.

God knows we're only human and we fall short of his grace, God is God after all and there's no surprises.

GOD SHOULD CONDEM PEOPLE TAKING SOMEONES LIFE LET HIM SPEND THE REST OF HIS LIFE IN PRISON

i think he is innocent u cant tell in the video it was him u st0p punishing wrong people god should condem people taking someone elses lifes

Nancy, his semen was in her body. The gun used to kill Sophia was found in his house, along with the black beanie seen in the video. His friend had her car keys and driver's license in his apartment. How much more evidence do you need? God's law commanded the death penalty for various acts especially murder and rape. God has also given government the authority to determine when capital punishment is due (Genesis 9:6) I'm not saying go out and celebrate the death, but also remember her family
