In this Nov. 15, 2012 photo, Carl Henry
Blue looks back at family and friends while being
escorted back to
after having his execution date set at the Brazos County Courthouse
in Bryan, Texas. Blue never disputed
filling a convenience store drink cup with gasoline,
tossing it on
his former girlfriend at the door of her
apartment and setting her ablaze.
Nineteen days after the September
1994 incident, 38-year-old
Carmen Richards-Sanders died of her burns.
