&#thirty-nine;Vampire Killer' Executed By Lethal Injection

A TX man who claimed he drank his 12-year-old victim's blood has been keep to death by lethal injection.

Pablo Lucio Vasquez, thirty-eight, was executed on Thursday for the murder of David Cardenas in April 1998.

He told police he was drunk and high when voices told him to murder the baby during a party in the TX border town of Donna.

The youngster was struck on the head with a pipe and his throat was slit.

The killer, who was twenty at the time, told investigating officers at the time that he heard voices telling him to drink the deceased boy's blood.

"The blood was dripping and (I) got it all over my face, so I don't know. I mean, something just told me drink," he said, according to police transcripts of a confession.

David'south body was found lost limbs and nearly decapitated in a unoccupied field five days after the murder.

Vasquez was found guilty of the killing after a trial.

Joseph Orendain, the lead trial prosecutor, described the case as "really horrendous", adding: "Did he drink (the blood)? I don't know."

Asked by a warden if he'd a final statement before he was given the lethal dose of pentobarbital, Vasquez  thanked relatives for being present, before addressing four members of his victim'south family.

"I'm sorry to David's family," he said. "This is the only way that I can be forgiven. You got your justice right here."

Vasquez'south execution is the eleventh this year in the US and the sixth in Texas.

It took space four hours after the US Supreme Ct rejected an appeal to obstruct the execution.

His cousin Andres Rafael Chapa, then fifteen, who'd used a shovel to assistance Vasquez, pleaded guilty to murder and is serving a 35-year jail term.
