AUSTIN - Texas executed a man on Wednesday who fatally shot his ex-wife and four others in 1997 with a hunting rifle in a killing spree launched when he found her having sex with another man.

Coy Wesbrook, 58, was pronounced dead at 8:04 p.m. after receiving a lethal injection at the state's death chamber in Huntsville. His execution had been delayed by about two hours because of a last-minute appeal.

The execution was the 535th in Texas since the U.S. Supreme Court reinstated the death penalty in 1976, the most of any state.
