Texas has executed a Bryan man convicted of killing his former girlfriend at her apartment by dousing her with gasoline and setting her on fire.

Forty-eight-year-old Carl Blue was executed by lethal injection Thursday evening.

Blue was convicted of the September 1994 death of 38-year-old Carmen Richards-Sanders at her apartment in Bryan.

Prosecutors said the attack was the result of jealousy. Blue said it was a prank gone wrong.

The U.S. Supreme Court rejected his final appeal shortly before the execution. His death was the first execution this year in the nation's most active death penalty state.
