HUNTSVILLE, Texas — A Texas death row inmate convicted of killing a fellow drug dealer while robbing him outside of a Waco convenience store 10 years ago was executed on Tuesday.

Carroll Joe Parr's attorneys didn't file any last-minute court appeals, but Parr himself filed a petition with the U.S. Supreme Court to stop his punishment, arguing his legal help at his trial was deficient. Earlier Tuesday, the same appeal was denied by a judge in his trial court in Waco.

Prosecutors said Parr, 35, killed 18-year-old Joel Dominguez on Jan. 11, 2003. Parr and a friend, Earl Whiteside, went to rob Dominguez after Parr bought $2,500 worth of marijuana earlier that day.
