HUNTSVILLE, Texas (AP) — Fifteen years after a pair of North Texas road rage killings took Douglas Feldman off the streets and into a death row cell, the rage still appears to exist.

The 55-year-old Feldman is set for execution Wednesday evening in Huntsville.

Texas Department of Criminal Justice officials declined to make him available to reporters as his death date approached after one media session never even got under way because he ripped the telephone from the prison visiting cage.

It’s among 136 disciplinary cases Feldman’s has accumulated while on death row.

Feldman faces lethal injection for the shooting deaths of two truckers gunned down about 45 minutes apart on a Dallas-area freeway in August 1998. The shooting of a third man a week later led to Feldman’s arrest.
