Texas’ highest criminal court and a federal judge have refused to stop this week’s scheduled execution of Preyor, the convicted killer of a woman in San Antonio in 2004. Preyor is set for lethal injection Thursday, July 27, 2017, in Huntsville, for killing 24-year-old Jami Tackett during a break-in at her apartment. Tackett is described in court documents as a drug dealer and the 46-year-old Preyor as a customer and dealer. (Texas Department of Criminal Justice via AP)

Forty-six-year-old TaiChin Preyor was put to death Thursday evening after his attorneys failed to convince courts that he had deficient legal help during earlier stages of his appeals and that he deserved a reprieve so his case could be reviewed more fairly.

After the U.S. Supreme Court rejected his final appeal, he was taken to the death chamber in Huntsville, Texas, for lethal injection.

Preyor was convicted in the February 2004 slaying of 24-year-old Jami Tackett, who court records identified as Preyor’s drug supplier. She was stabbed and her throat was cut.

Preyor’s execution was Texas’ fifth this year and the 16th nationally.

He was convicted of breaking into the San Antonio apartment of 24-year-old Jami Tackett in February 2004 and fatally slashing her. Court documents show she was his drug supplier.
