Former Lubbock Co. Inmate Executed

A former Lubbock County Jail inmate was executed in Huntsville Tuesday evening.

48-year-old Roger Dale Vaughn was put to death just after 6 p.m. Tuesday night for the 1991 slaying of a North Texas woman.

Vaughn was being held on forgery and robbery charges in Lubbock when he fled the county jail in October of 1991. He was a trusty at the time. Two days later, 66-year-old Dora Watkins was raped and strangled at her home in Vernon.

Prison officials say Vaughn smiled, laughed, and mouthed to relatives that he loved them, but made no final statement.
