Associated Press DALLAS — An inmate who was one of the "Texas 7" escaped prisoners blamed for the 2000 slaying of a Dallas-area police officer faces execution this fall. The Texas Department of Criminal Justice says Randy Halprin is scheduled for execution Oct. 10. TDCJ spokesman Jeremy Desel, in an email Thursday to The Associated Press, said a judge in Dallas signed the order July 3. Halprin, who's Jewish, has a federal appeal pending that alleges a different judge who oversaw his capital murder trial was anti-Semitic and used racial slurs. Ex-Judge Vickers Cunningham has denied the allegations. Halprin and six others in December 2000 escaped from the Connally Unit. Irving police Officer Aubrey Hawkins was shot while investigating a Christmas Eve robbery. An attorney for Halprin didn't immediately return a message Thursday.
