A convicted child sex offender was executed Wednesday for the beating death of a 10-month-old boy he was baby-sitting at a home in Dallas.

Jesse Joe Hernandez was put to death in Huntsville Texas for killing 10 month old Karlos Borja back in April 2001.

Mr. Hernandez,  who reportedly smiled and laughed before stating, "God Bless everybody. Continue to walk with God,"  Then seconds later, he shouted "Go Cowboys!" in honor of his favorite football team.

As the lethal drugs started taking effect, Mr. Hernandez again stated his appreciation for the people that had gathered to watch his death "Love y'all, man," Mr.  Hernandez said. "... Thank you. I can feel it, taste it. It's not bad."

He took about 10 deep breaths, which grew progressively weaker until he was no longer moving. Ten minutes later, at 6:18 p.m. CDT, he was pronounced dead.

He now has payed for his crime and may little Karlos and Mr. Hernandez rest in peace!!!
