Eighteen men and no women have been

executed in the United States in 2017.

Michael John Yowell was executed by the state of Texas on October 9, 2013.  He was pronounced dead at 7:11 pm CDT, inside the Walls Unit execution chamber at the Huntsville State Penitentiary in Huntsville, Texas.  Michael was 43 years of age.  He was executed for the murder of his father, 55-year-old Johnny Yowell, his mother, 53-year-old Carol Nichols, and his grandmother, 89-year-old Viola Davis.  Michael killed his family in a panic after they caught him stealing money for drugs.

 

Michael was neglected as a child and had attempted to commit suicide in 1991.  His father was an alcoholic gambler who abused Michael.  Prior to his arrest, Michael worked as a steel fabrication, a cook, and a laborer.  He had previously been arrested for possessing a controlled substance.  Michael was addicted to drugs, which cost him $200 a day.

 

Please pray for peace and healing for the family of Johnny, Carol, Viola, and Michael.
