A former financial analyst has been executed for the shooting deaths of two truck drivers in Texas 15 years ago.
Douglas Feldman, 55, received lethal injection for gunning down Robert Everett and Nicholas Valesquez during a fit of road rage in 1998.
Feldman died 13 minutes after the lethal drug was injected at 6:28 pm local time.
Before his death, he mimicked the announcement a judge or jury makes when announcing a verdict, declaring he had found the victims guilty of crimes against him.
"I have sentenced them both to death. I personally carried out their executions," he said in a loud voice, adding that he carried out their executions in August 1998.
"As of that time, the state of Texas has been holding me illegally in confinement and by force for 15 years.
"I hereby protest my pending execution and demand immediate relief."
John Everett witnessed the execution of his brother's killer.
"His statement just showed more of the heart of the man," Mr Everett said.
"Very dark and very evil and very unremorseful."
Feldman's attorney, Robin Norris, filed a clemency petition with the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles that was turned down on Monday.
Feldman, from Richardson, was riding his motorcycle the night of August 24, 1998, and said Everett cut him off on a Dallas highway so he took out his gun, pulled up alongside the truck and shot him.
Feldman testified at his capital murder trial that he was still angry about 45 minutes later when he spotted Valesquez, a gas tanker driver, at a Dallas service station and shot him.
"A security camera catches him shooting the man in cold blood," Jason January, the former Dallas County assistant district attorney who prosecuted him, said.
"Several counties were frightened as this unidentified motorcyclist was out acting like 'The Terminator'."
Feldman was arrested more than a week later, after shooting and wounding a man at a fast food outlet and driving off.
