HUNTSVILLE, Texas -- Texas has executed a 32-year-old man convicted of gunning down two video store workers during a robbery 14 years ago in Dallas.

The execution of Leon David Dorsey IV on Tuesday was seventh this year in the nation's most active death penalty state. Three other Texas inmates are scheduled to be executed in the next two weeks.

Dorsey pleaded guilty in 1994 to killing a woman during a convenience store robbery and was sentenced to 60 years in prison.

While in prison, Dorsey was convicted in 2000 of killing 26-year-old James Armstrong and 20-year-old Brad Lindsey at an East Dallas Blockbuster Video store where they worked.
