HUNTSVILLE, TX — A Channelview man convicted of killing his ex-wife and four others, 19 years ago, has now been put to death.

58-year-old Coy Wesbrook was executed by lethal injection last night.

In 1997,  Wesbrook went to his ex-wife’s Houston home trying to win her back.

Instead he caught her in bed with two men during a party and went on a shooting rampage leaving five dead in just 40 seconds.

Wesbrook’s was the 4th execution this year.

10 other Texas inmates are scheduled to be executed in the coming months, including two later this month.
