Texas Man Executed for Woman's Abduction, Rape, Slaying

A registered sex offender was put to death Wednesday evening for the rape, robbery and slaying of a woman abducted from a San Antonio bus stop 11 years ago.

Ramon Torres Hernandez was one of three people convicted in the killing of Rosa Maria Rosado, 37, who was pulled into a car Hernandez was driving after she refused to let go of her purse during a drive-by robbery.

Hernandez, 39, told a family member he was "sorry for putting you through all this" after a warden asked if he wanted to make a final statement.
