A former rap artist was executed by lethal injection in Texas on Wednesday. Ray Jasper was put to death for the murder of a recording studio owner, according to MSN News on March 20.

David Alejandro, 33, was stabbed to death and his throat was slit back in 1998. Jasper admitted to slitting the recording studio owner’s throat but maintained he didn’t deliver the fatal stab wounds. He went to his death still saying that it was his partner in this crime who delivered the stab wounds that were thought to have killed Alejandro.

This execution is the third for Texas so far this year and another one is set for next week. After next week’s lethal injection death, a new batch of the drug pentobarbital will be used. This new patch will come from a different pharmacy and it will be used for lethal injections in Texas.

Jasper was convicted of killing the studio owner during a robbery.
