Man who killed Dallas-area officer to be executed

DALLAS (AP) — A man convicted of killing a Dallas-area police officer is set to die Thursday night. Attorneys for Kent Sprouse have not appealed.

Tests showed the 42-year-old used illegal drugs before killing Ferris Police Officer Marty Steinfeldt in 2002 outside a convenience store. Sprouse was also charged — but not tried — in the death of Pedro Moreno, who was pumping gas nearby. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
