In October 2009, the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals refused to hear a petition filed by Davidís legal team containing new evidence that would have affected the outcome of his sentencing, thus exhausting David's legal remedies.
Following on the Court of Criminal Appeals' decision, Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg set the June 15 execution date.
