Clemency Denied for Skinner, execution will proceed

Posted:

Huntsville, TX -- A convicted murderer from Pampa had his clemency request rejected by the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles.

47-year-old Hank Skinner still has an execution set for Wednesday evening in Huntsville.

He killed his girlfriend and her two sons in their Pampa home on New Year's Eve in 1993.

During an interview with NewsChannel 10, Skinner claimed he was passed out on the couch drugged up when the murders took place, so he couldn't have done it.

He says new DNA evidence would clear him of the crime.
