Cleve Foster Receives 3rd Stay of Execution From U.S. Supreme Court

Texas Department of Criminal Justice

The U.S. Supreme Court has blocked the execution of a former Army recruiter for the rape-slaying of a woman in Fort Worth nearly 10 years ago. Forty-seven-year-old Cleve Foster was set to die Tuesday evening in Huntsville. The high court twice earlier this year had stopped Foster’s scheduled lethal injection as his punishment was imminent. This latest court ruling came less than three hours before Foster could have been taken to the Texas death chamber.

The gun used to kill the woman in fort worth was also the gun used to kill Lubbock woman Rachel Urnosky. In a statement to KAMC 28 news, Urnosky’s father said “At this moment we are indeed saddened and sorely grieved that the legal and punishment phase of this tragedy is still not over. My family and I are very appreciative of all of the thoughts and prayers that have helped to sustain us through the past ten years. We are resolved to rebuild our lives as a family and continue to overcome this evil with good.”
