*Last Meal: Since death row inmates there are no longer allowed to order special last meals, Sprouse was given the same food as others in his unit. For his last meal, Sprouse had beef noodle casserole, peas & carrots, black beans, and cornbread, with a choice of punch, tea, or water to drink.(per Last Suppers Book)
*Last Words: He apologized to the families of slain Ferris police officer Marty Steinfieldt and Pedro Moreno, an innocent bystander who was also killed in the 2002 shooting spree, “for all the trouble I have caused them.” He also apologized to his own family.

“I guess that’s it,” he said. (per WFAA)

*Thug: Kent William Sprouse
*Date of Execution: 9 Apr 2015
*Date of Crimes: 6 Oct 2002
*Victims: Police Officer Harry Marvin “Marty” Steinfeldt III, 28 / Pedro Moreno, 38
*Last Words and Last Meal TBA.

Sometime after 6p.m.Central, this murderer will be given final justice. It hasn’t taken as long as too many others on death row to reach this point. All his appeals to the various courts have been denied and with the Supreme Court refusing to even hear his plea it seems certain Sprouse will soon be no more.

His conviction and sentence can be summed up in this statement he made shortly after he murdered Officer Steinfeldt:

Court records indicate that Sprouse told an officer who accompanied him to a hospital that he believed Moreno was an undercover officer, so he shot him.

“And I shot the other officer that was in uniform,” Sprouse said, according to the records.(Source)

There was some gum-flapping that he was insane after using methamphetamine, but he took responsibility for his actions to follow before he used illicit drugs and clearly understood what he had done afterward.

HERE is another article that addresses his use of meth.

As for the pentobarbital supply, the TDCJ received a fresh batch on 25 Mar 15 and should be an adequate supply for the next three executions set for this month.

My sincerest best wishes for the family of Officer Steinfeldt and his fellow officers.
