A south Texas man who bludgeoned and slashed to death a 12-year-old boy, mutilated the corpse and then drank the blood of his victim was executed on Wednesday at the state’s death chamber in Huntsville, a prisons official said.

Pablo Vasquez, 38, was put to death by lethal injection and pronounced dead at 6:35 p.m., the official said. The execution was the sixth in Texas this year and the 537th since the U.S. Supreme Court reinstated the death penalty in 1976, the most of any state.

About four hours before the planned execution, the U.S. Supreme Court denied a petition to halt the proceedings.

Lawyers for Vasquez has launched the last-minute appeal, saying their client had been denied a fair punishment because prospective, qualified jurors in his trial had been dismissed if they had sympathies against the death penalty.

The lawyers had previously said Vasquez had mental health problems and suffered from learning disabilities.

The victim, David Cardenas, was found under metal sheets in the Texas border town of Donna in 1998. The arms were missing from the corpse, which had no skin on the back and a hole in the back of the head, court papers filed by Texas said.
