“To the victim’s family, I want you to know that I hope you let go of all of the hate because of all my actions,” Paredes said before he was injected with a lethal dose of pentobarbital at 6:32 p.m. Oct. 28. “I came in as a lion and I come as peaceful as a lamb. I’m at peace. “

He was declared dead, 22 minutes later, at 6:54 p.m., becoming the 10th person executed in Texas this year and the 518th put to death in Texas since the state resumed executions in 1982.

Paredes was convicted for the shooting deaths of Adrian Torres, 27; his 23-year-old girlfriend, Nelly Bravo; and Shawn Michael Cain, 23. Their burned bodies were found in nearby Frio County.

Two co-defendants, John Anthony Saenz and Greg Alvarado, were also convicted in the deaths. Bexar County prosecutors claimed the three were settling a drug debt with Torres when the murders occurred.

But Paredes, 32, told the San Antonio Express-News he and his fellow Hermanos Pistoleros Latinos associates met up with Torres, a member of a rival gang, the Mexican Mafia, to confront him about threats he had made.
