Sparks locked his stepdaughters in a closet and left the home, stopping at his mother's house to borrow her car, and then his ex-girlfriend's home, where he told her he had killed his wife and two stepsons. He then called police and confessed, court records showed.
After traveling to Austin for a few days, Sparks returned to Dallas and was arrested. He told police his wife had been poisoning him. He provided blood, hair and fingernail samples, as well as a cheek swab, to be tested for evidence of poisoning, but investigators were unable to find a lab capable of that type of test, according to court papers.
As of Wednesday, Sparks has a pending request with the U.S. Supreme Court to stay his execution so his case can be reviewed. He argues that an expert for the prosecutor gave false testimony and a courtroom bailiff may have tainted the jury's death penalty decision by wearing a homemade tie depicting a syringe to show his support for the death penalty.
Sparks would be the 16th inmate in the United States and the seventh in Texas to be executed in 2019, according to the Death Penalty Information Center.
