Multiple murderer David Martin Long is executed by lethal injection at the age of 46 in Huntsville Prison, 815 12th Street, Huntsville, Texas, United States.

Two days before Long was scheduled to be executed he took an overdose of prescription drugs and was hospitalized in Galveston, Texas. Officials in Texas refused to delay the execution. Initially placed on a ventilator, Long improved significantly by the next day. He was placed on a medically supervised flight back to Huntsville on the day of his scheduled execution so that he could be executed as scheduled.
