Texas recorded its 12th execution of the year Wednesday night after 41-year-old Donnie Lee Roberts was put to death for the 2003 murder of his girlfriend at her East Texas Home.

Roberts was given a lethal injection Wednesday for fatally shooting 44-year-old Vicki Bowen and taking items from her Lake Livingston home to sell or trade to support his drug habit.

Police reports revealed that Roberts shot Bowen three times in the head when she refused to give him money. He then fled the scene in the victim’s son’s vehicle.

The U.S. Supreme Court refused to review Roberts’ case earlier this week. No additional appeals were filed to try to block his execution.
