Strip club killer to receive death penalty
Richard Lee Tabler will receive the death penalty for murdering two people connected with a Killeen, Texas strip club in November 2004.
A Bell County, Texas District Court jury handed down the sentence following three hours of deliberation today. Tabler was not charged with the murders of two other victims in the killing spree.
The other man charged with those murders, 2004 East Newton High School graduate Timothy Doan Payne, is scheduled to stand trial May 21.
