Texas, which leads the nation in carrying out the death penalty, has executed the 400th person since the state resumed capital punishment in 1982.
On Tuesday, the European Union urged the governor of Texas to halt all executions before the state carried out Conner's death sentence.
A spokesman for Texas Gov. Rick Perry responded in a statement "Texans long ago decided that the death penalty is a just and appropriate punishment for the most horrible crimes committed against our citizens."
