He has spent more than 23 years awaiting his execution for the deaths of four men near Sherman.
59-year-old Lester Bower has been on death row since 1984 for the slayings of four men in an airplane hanger near Sherman.
This is video of the murder scene from our archives, captured more than 23 years ago.
At least five previous attempts to execute him have been blocked. Friday, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed his conviction.
A federal district court judge earlier had allowed Bower to pursue claims that his trial lawyer was ineffective.
Bower has maintained his innocence in the October 1983 shooting deaths.
