    TX - Railroad Killer Angel Maturino Resendiz facing execution

    HOUSTON -- Condemned serial killer Angel Maturino Resendiz, the Mexican drifter dubbed the "Railroad Killer," was scheduled Friday to be executed on May 10 for raping and killing a Houston doctor.
    Maturino Resendiz's lawyer, Jack Zimmermann, objected to the setting of the execution date while an appeal before the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals is pending, but prosecutor Roe Wilson argued that the appeals process could continue even with an execution date set.


    "It is time. We need to carry out the sentence and justice needs to be served," Wilson said.


    Maturino Resendiz got the name the "Railroad Killer" because he was linked to 14 slayings in Texas, California, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky and Illinois near the rail lines he rode nationwide. He has claimed to have committed even more.
