Twenty-six years?

Texas has executed a convicted cop-killer, after 26 years on death row.

Carl Wayne Buntion, convicted in the 1990 slaying of a Houston police officer, was executed Thursday evening in Huntsville — as lawyers battled until the last minute to stop his death, even if temporarily

Buntion, 78, gunned down motorcycle officer James Irby during a June evening traffic stop on a Northside street, with news reports at the time stating that he had vowed to avenge his twin brother’s 1971 death at the hands of a police officer.

Sorry, but 26 years after the man apparently admitted that he killed the officer?
