The State of Texas is scheduled to put Raphael Holiday to death on November 18, 2015. He was convicted of the arson murders of three young children in 2000 in Madison County.
If the execution scheduled for November 18 goes forward, TCADP Houston Chapter will hold the Houston vigil at 5:45 pm in front of St. Stephen's Episcopal Church at the corner of West Alabama and Woodhead. We are changing locations because of the construction at the corner of Holcombe and Almeda.
The State of Texas accounts for 12 of the 25 executions nationwide this year. Four executions are scheduled for the early months of 2016.
