Death watch for Mark Anthony Soliz

5 p.m.

A Fort Worth man who fatally shot a 61-year-old grandmother at her North Texas home nearly a decade ago is scheduled to be executed after 6 p.m. today at the Huntsville "Walls" Unit.

Mark Anthony Soliz and his codefendant Jose Claremont Ramos Jr., knocked on the door of Nancy Weatherly on June 29, 2010 and pulled a 9-millimeter handgun. The duo pushed her inside the home and removed several electronics. Before leaving the residence, Soliz shot the victim in the back of the head causing her death.
