Did Texas Execute an Innocent Man?

Ruben Cantu was just 17 when he was charged with capital murder for his alleged involvement in a botched robbery. He was convicted and sentenced to death. At the age of 26, he was executed by the State of Texas. Now, the Houston Chronicle has uncovered stunning evidence that Cantu was likely innocent. The blawgosphere is abuzz about this case today. It is a must read. (A follow-up article about the co-defendant who has recanted his implication of Cantu is here.)
