TEXAS PLANS TO EXECUTE:

LEGAL ANALYSTS:
Houston criminal defense attorneys LARRY DOUGLAS and MICHAEL GILLESPIE.

REPORTER outside the death house, Huntsville: LINDA SNYDER, anti-death penalty activist.

SPECIAL GUEST:
PAT McCANN, Houston defense attorney expert in appellate and post-conviction remedies in Texas.

SPECIAL INTERVIEWS:
A 23-minute recorded interview with HUMMEL, recently conducted by DOUGLAS on death row, will air.

NEXT SCHEDULED EXECUTION: On Sept. 8, Texas plans to kill John Ramirez. If that happens, we plan to bring you coverage. We’ll also cover any additional executions TDCJ may schedule in the interim.
