Texas executes man who killed his daughters

Texas executes man who killed his daughtersThe US state of Texas put to death Thursday a man who executed his two young daughters while forcing his ex-wife to listen on the phone. John Battaglia shot to death his six- and nine-year-old daughters in 2001, when they were visiting him for dinner. Battaglia’s lawyers filed last-minute appeals claiming he suffered from mental illness and delusions that made him incapable of understanding why he was being punished.
