    Walks up, chats a bit, stabs/kills a complete stranger. Premeditation, too. Can't claim "oops" in this case, I think. Two-to-one bet that he pleads "not guilty." Any takers?

    Maybe not guilty of 1st degree since it was not who he intended, but guilty nonetheless.

    Intent follows the bullet (or the knife in this case).

    The pre-meditation to kill is there - the fact that he killed the wrong victim is irrelevant.

    The only bright spot - he's in Texas, where they have an express lane to the lethal injection room.

    Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

    This is a case where the victim had she been carrying concealed may have reversed the outcome,this was a guy that decided he was going to kill his X,I bet he was 6 sheets to the wind,I hope they don't wait 10+ years to put him to death

    I wonder if he had killed any other Woman that he thought was his "wife".
    Many of the seriel killers keep killing the "same" person over and over. They choose people who look like the person they want dead.
