Keith Thurmond seethed as his estranged wife moved in with a neighbor across
the street from his Montgomery County home.
Then when deputies served him with a court order that took away his 8-year-old
son and placed the boy in his mother's custody, Thurmond told a friend he was
"very mad and was going to do something stupid."
On Wednesday evening, the 52-year-old Thurmond faces execution in Huntsville
for fatally shooting his wife and the neighbor more than 10 years ago.
His lawyer has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to stop the lethal injection.
It would be the 3rd execution this year in Texas.
