John William King, 44, who is inked in racist tattoos, who orchestrated the attack on James Byrd Jr, will be put to death by lethal injection at the state´s death chamber in Huntsville at 6 pm local time.King along with Shawn Berry and Lawrence Brewer were accused of kidnapping Byrd while he hitchhiked in Jasper, Texas, on June 7, 1998.Lawrence Russell Brewer was executed in 2011 and the third participant, Shawn Allen Berry, was sentenced to life in prison and is still serving his sentence.Now Byrd's family are relieving the details of their brother's horrific murder again as they prepare for the execution of King on Wednesday. Louvon Byrd Harris, 61, one of Byrd's sisters, told The Daily Beast: 'He’s trying to save his life by all means necessary. But he did live 20 years longer than my brother and I think that speaks a lot.'The punishment would be just to take an injection and go to sleep, and even at that I still think he’s getting off easy.'King was found guilty of capital murder and sentenced to death in 1999. He was a member of a white supremacist gang and spoke of starting a race war while in prison for a previous crime. He has tattoos etched on his body including a woodpecker in KKK garb, a silhouette of a black man lynched from a cross, the lightning-bolt SS of the Nazi Schutzstaffel, and the words "Aryan Pride."There also is a crest with a Confederate flag and a burning cross.
