The state of Texas will execute a Houston man this month after being found guilty of murder in 2001 of a well known Houston drag queen.

Richard Masterson was convicted of the strangulation of Darrin Honeycutt, who performed under the name Brandi Houston.

The popular queen was found naked in her Montrose apartment on January 27, 2001. According to records Honeycutt and Mastersen had met at a gay bar the day before.

In a death row interview, Masterson said he “accepts responsibility” for his actions but insisted “I never admitted I murdered anybody.”
