On July 16, 2013, the jury in the capital murder trial of Albert Love, Jr., sentenced him to death for the 2011 murders of Kennan Hubert, 20, and Tyler Sneed, 17, in Waco. Love is the second of two men convicted in the shooting deaths. A McLennan County jury sentenced Ricky Cummings to death for his role in the shooting on November 12, 2013; media coverage of Cummings’ trial led to Love’s trial being moved to Williamson County. A third defendant, Darvis Cummings, Ricky Cummings’ brother, has also been charged with capital murder for his role in the shooting; his trial has not yet begun.

This is the fifth new death sentence in 2013. Texas juries sentenced nine men to death in 2013.
