Last Execution of Year in Texas?

After a late appeal was rejected (for some reason -- we have no grounds to be told -- Breyer did not take part), Miguel Angel Paredes, whose bio suggests his fate was far from surprising, was executed. Don't find this overly useful myself. Update: With lots of former judges etc. pushing for it, USSC does stay an execution 6-3. No need to wait this long. And, given the rarity of it, how about a damn short opinion explaining why?!
