John Wade Adams and an accomplice were convicted of killing Donna Vick in her Texas home back in 1997. Both men originally received the death penalty, and the accomplice was executed in 2008.
Adams, however, was granted a new sentencing trial. When the jury could not agree on the death penalty, the judge declared a mistrial.
Adams leaned back in his chair and said to the victim’s family, “I won.”
