Toby Shook prosecuted that other Rowlett murder case where the lawyer's husband was convicted of killing in a home invasion type killing his wife's business partner's husband and injuring the business partner. It was all very shady and laced with corruption as I recall. I think it is the case supporters like to use to show that home invasions really do happen in Rowlett, but, of course, this case had nothing to do with a stranger breakin like they like to promote.

You're talking about Catherine Shelton's husband, Clint. Yup, Toby put the dude away alright. And, of course, supporters did try to get on the band wagon, but all it did was prove that most murder victims know their killers.

Exactly. And it really ticks off a newbie to the case when they do stuff like that. It makes you feel like they are trying to dupe you. :furious:

Jeana,
When is this election? And how much damage would it do to his campaign if the Routier conviction is overturned?

Primary election is March 7; Early voting begins Feb. 21

Even if the impossible happened and her conviction was overturned, it sure ain't gonna happen before the election. :) He has little to fear - EVER - from the Routier case. :) :) :) :) :)

Not enough to cause him to lose. Esp if it is overturned on a technicality he could not control.

We've heard story after story from posters who've either changed sides completely or fell off the fence on the "guilty" side once they've learned just how many times and how many "stories" they've been "duped" about. Like the Routiers' lies on the witness stand, bad choices one after the other since the conviction.

It is a common mistake for defendants to try to fix their story by trying to make it match the evidence as they learn what the cops have. Just like in the old Columbo shows, step by step they show their guilt. They might fool some of us in the beginning but eventually the evidence starts shining thru.

Oh, by the way, this is the description of the democrat running against Toby:

In achieving his Tuesday victory, Mr. Watkins, a Dallas defense lawyer with no experience as a felony prosecutor, overcame disclosures that he has a history of failing to pay income taxes.

The government placed liens on his home in December and January. He has also been sued for failure to pay other debts. Mr. Watkins has said that he paid the liens and that his financial matters are not relevant to his campaign.

He has also acknowledged that his campaign literature inaccurately stated that he worked as a prosecutor in Tarrant County when he was more correctly a "prosecutor intern."
:D :D :D :D :D :D

hahahahahahahah! Maybe. I still hope she does so more evidence will come out, but I realize the odds are slim to none. Can't wait to read the state's answer to her appeal. If they don't post it, will you get a copy and share it with us????

ONLY NINE YEARS FROM CONVICTION TO EXECUTION! Texas is doing something right and we have Toby Shook to thank once again!!!!


Execution Wednesday for theater killer

* * *


Nearly nine years have passed since 25-year-old Foluke G. Erinkitola and her friend Roxanne Andrea Mendoza, 29, were robbed and killed in the parking lot of the AMC Grand theater at Interstate 35E and Northwest Highway.

* * *

The murders took place Aug. 13, 1997. The robbers fled in a car that undercover officers happened to see speeding away from the theater's parking lot before they knew about the shooting.

Patrol officers were soon able to stop the car. Inside, they found three people, Ms. Erinkitola's billfold, Ms. Mendoza's purse and two .38-caliber handguns.

It took a jury only 70 minutes to find Mr. Hughes guilty of capital murder in Ms. Erinkitola's death.

* * *


But during Mr. Hughes' trial, his cousin Hernando Palmer testified that he had asked Mr. Hughes why he thought the two women had to die.

"He said that the [expletive] could identify them," Mr. Palmer testified in 1998.

The lead prosecutor in Mr. Hughes' capital murder trial, Toby Shook, said he has been waiting for tonight's execution.
"I'm glad the day is finally here," said Mr. Shook, now chief of the felony trial division of the district attorney's office and the Republican candidate for district attorney.

"He deserves the punishment. It still makes me angry [to think of] the potential the two victims had," he said.

* * *

Mr. Erinkitola said that he had forgotten Mr. Hughes was scheduled to be executed tonight and that he's torn over the death penalty. He said the answers to two questions would determine whether justice was served:

"Does he now realize that killing someone is wrong? Does he really understand his crime? That's what I want to know."

PRAYERS AND THOUGHTS TO THE FAMILIES OF THE VICTIMS:

Foluke G. Erinkitola (25 years old)
and
Roxanne Andrea Mendoza (29 years old)
