Lawyers for Alvin Avon Braziel, Jr., have requested a stay of execution from the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals over claims of prosecutorial misconduct.


Updated: Monday, December 10, 2018  8:38 am


Alvin Avon Braziel, Jr., is scheduled to be executed at 6 pm CST, on Tuesday, December 11, 2018, at the Walls Unit of the Huntsville State Penitentiary in Huntsville, Texas.  Alvin is convicted of the murder of 27-year-old Douglas White on September 21, 1993, in Dallas, Texas.  Alvin has spent the lat 17 years on death row in Texas.


Alvin was born in Texas.  He dropped out of school following the 8th grade.  Alvin allegedly grew up in an abusive home and his family had a history of mental illness.  Alvin also sustained a head injury as a child, which could have affected his brain function.  Alvin worked as a laborer prior to his arrest.


On September 21, 1993, Douglas and Lora White were walking along a jogging trail at Eastfield College.  The newlyweds had been married for 11 days.  While walking, a man, later identified as Alvin Braziel, stepped out from behind some bushes and pointed a gun at them.  He demand money.  The couple had no money with them and Braziel then shot Douglas twice.  Braziel then dragged Lora behind some bushes and sexually assaulted her before running off.  Douglas died from his injuries.  Lora reported the incident to the police and was able to provide the police with a description.  She also worked with a sketch artist to create a drawing, however, no match was made.

Some years after the murder and attack of Douglas and Lora White, Braziel was arrested and sentenced to five years in prison for the sexual assault of a child. 


In February 2001, Lora was contacted by police saying the DNA collected from her assault was matched to an offender currently incarcerated.  Lora was able to identify her attacker when viewing a photo line-up.  She was also willing and able to testify and identify him in court.


Braziel was convicted and sentenced to death on August 9, 2001.  


Please pray for peace and healing for Lora and for the family of Douglas White.  Please pray for strength for the family of Alvin Braziel.  Please pray that if Alvin is innocent, lacks the competency to be executed, or should not be executed for any other reason that evidence will be presented prior to his execution.  Please pray that Alvin may come to find peace through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, if he has not already.
