OBAMA STEPS IN – Seeks Delay in Mexican Immigrant Killer’s Execution (Video) UPDATE: Too Late… He’s Dead

The Obama White House is pleading for a stay in the case that has pitted Texas justice against international treaty rights. Humberto Leal, 38, is set to die in Huntsville for the 1994 brutal rape and murder of 16-year-old Adria Sauceda, of San Antonio.

Humberto Leal Jr. is scheduled to be executed for kidnapping, raping and killing a 16-year-old San Antonio girl. At issue: Leal is a Mexican citizen.

Unless Texas Governor Rick Perry or the U.S. Supreme Court intervenes to stay the execution, Texas plans to execute Humberto Leal Jr. at 6 p.m. Central Time for the 1994 murder of 16-year-old Adria Sauceda.

Update: Leal was executed by lethal injection. His last words were, “I am truly sorry. Viva Mexico! Let’s get this show on the road.”
