Houston policeman's killer set to die loses appeal

HOUSTON (AP) -- A federal appeals court has refused to stop the scheduled execution this week of a man convicted of killing a Houston police officer 14 years ago this week.

The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Monday rejected an appeal from 37-year-old Jeffrey Demond Williams.

Williams is set to die Wednesday evening in Huntsville for fatally shooting 39-year-old Troy Blando as the officer was trying to handcuff him the morning of May 19, 1999, in a Houston motel parking lot.

Williams was driving a stolen car and Blando was in plain clothes working an auto theft assignment.  Blando managed to radio a description of his attacker and police arrested Williams a short time later.

Williams' lawyers still could appeal the 5th Circuit ruling to the U.S. Supreme Court.
