Mark Anthony Soliz, 37, first shot deliveryman Reben Martinez at a Fort Worth convenience store. Then he drove to Godley in Johnson County and murdered Nancy Weatherly, 61, during a burglary.

There are no appeals pending, according to the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.

While the District Attorney and law enforcement officials were willing to spend over $1 million to try the death penalty case, Soliz's trial attorney says they wasted valuable money.

The Latest: Texas executes man for killing 2 women A Texas death row inmate has been executed for fatally stabbing an 89-year-old woman and her daughter more than 16 years ago after entering their Fort Worth home under the pretense of doing some work for them. 

"We're about to kill a guy who has fetal alcohol syndrome." said Greg Westfall. "What could we as a community learn from this? We're fixing to learn zero."

Westfall says there is an overriding "human need for vengence" that is driving the execution. Westfall says Soliz's mother was an alcoholic who huffed paint and smoked cocaine while she was pregnant. He says Westfall never had a chance.

The execution is scheduled for 6:00 p.m. tonight.
