KARLA FAYE HAD IT COMING BUT NOT CHIPITA

Leading up to the 1998 execution of ax murderer Karla Faye Tucker, there were repeated references to the fact that a woman had not been put to death in Texas since Nov. 13, 1863. Her name was Chipita Rodriguez and this is her sad but true story. For more years than most folks could remember, Chipita had lived alone in a wood cabin near the banks of the Aransas River. Weary riders caught out after dark on the trail between Refugio and San Patricio could always find cheap lodging at her place.
