48-year-old Christopher Wilkins, who was given the death penalty for killing two men in Fort Worth, Texas back in 2008 is set for lethal injection Wednesday evening. In an appeal this week before the high court, Wilkins' attorneys contended he had poor legal help at his original trial and during earlier appeals. According to state attorneys, courts have rejected similar appeals for Wilkins in the past, saying that defense lawyers are simply employing delaying tactics. Should the execution take place as scheduled, Wilkins will be the first prisoner executed in 2017.
