Kenneth Allen McDuff is one of the most hated and reviled names in Texas criminal history. Often called "the Poster Boy of Capital Punishment," he is the only man in US history to be sentenced to death, released from death row and then sentenced to death again and executed for a different crime.

To those who argue that the death penalty has no deterrent effect on crime, writer G.D.
