HUNTSVILLE, Texas (AP) — One of the fugitives in the notorious "Texas 7" prison gang is set for execution this week for the slaying of a suburban Dallas police officer during the escaped prisoners' holdup of a sporting goods store more than 14 years ago.

Donald Newbury on Wednesday evening would be the third member of the Texas 7 executed since they were hunted down in Colorado six weeks after pulling off the largest prison escape ever in Texas. They broke out of the Connally Unit in South Texas in December 2000.
