State-administered death is always a greater horror than any other by virtue of the methodical reasoning that precedes it. French philosopher Albert Camus wrote that "capital punishment is the most premeditated of murders". "The United States' concept of justifiable homicide/Executions in criminal law stands on the dividing line between an excuse, justification and an exculpation. In other words, it takes a case that would otherwise have been a murder or another crime representing intentional killing, and either excuses or justifies the individual accused from all criminal liability or treats the accused differently from other intentional killers.

Chris W. Shuffield

NEW BOSTON, Texas (AP) - A convicted murderer whose death sentence for a 2001 slaying in far northeast Texas was thrown out by an appeals court has been sentenced to life in prison.

Bowie County prosecutors chose to not seek the death penalty again for 34-year-old Chris Wayne Shuffield of Texarkana and he was resentenced Wednesday to life. He's eligible for parole after 40 years.

Shuffield was convicted of the 2001 shooting death of 36-year-old Lance Luke Walker of Simms. Walker was shot at least three times and his truck was taken from his home.

The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals overturned his death sentence after a fellow inmate acknowledged he provided false information that was used during Shuffield's original punishment hearing.
