Just as a Texas inmate was executed Thursday, he expressed feelings of euphoria as the lethal drugs were administered.
Just before the drugs took effect, Richard Cobb twisted his head back, raised it off the gurney's pillow and said, "Wow! That is great. That is awesome! Thank you, warden! Thank you [expletive] warden!"
Cobb was executed for fatally shooting one of three people he and a partner abducted during a convenience-store robbery almost 11 years ago. The two other women were also shot and raped.
