HUNTSVILLE, Texas (AP) - For Samuel Bustamante (boo-stuh-MAHN'-tay) and his buddies, shopping did not involve a trip to the mall. The men used the term to refer to hunting illegal immigrants, then beating and robbing them.

Bustamante, who's 40, faces execution Tuesday for a so-called "shopping" trip a dozen years ago that left 28-year-old Rafael Alvarado dead of stab wounds. The attack happened in Fort Bend County, southwest of Houston.

The lethal injection would be the seventh this year in Texas. At least 10 other executions are scheduled over the next three months in the nation's most active capital punishment state.
