HOUSTON (AP) -- One of the remaining notorious "Texas 7" gang members on death row has lost a court appeal.
The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals Wednesday rejected 35-year-old Randy Halprin's 31 claims challenging the validity of his conviction and death sentence.
Halprin is the youngest of the seven inmates who escaped from a South Texas prison in December 2000 and participated in the shooting death of a suburban Dallas police officer weeks later on Christmas Eve. He and the other gang members were tracked to Colorado where one killed himself and the six were captured.
Two already have been executed.
Halprin was serving 30 years for injury to a child from Tarrant County when he and the others escaped from the Connally Unit prison about 60 miles southeast of San Antonio. 'Texas 7' member on death row loses appeal
