Texecution (Texecuted)

There are legal executions of criminals in Texas. Some people have used the term “Texecution” ("Texas" + “execution") or “Texecuted” ("Texas" + “executed"). The term is often capitalized—like “Texas”—but also appears without capitalization. “Texecution” dates from about 1997.

Urban Dictionary
To be executed in the state of Texas.
Five men were Texecuted this year by lethal injection.

“Texecuted,” so to speak.

As Texas heads toward its 300th lethal injection in modern times, opposition to the Texecution Express emerged from a most unlikely quarter—within the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals.
