USA    SISTER PREJEAN LEADS VIGIL AS TEXAS EXECUTES KILLER
Houston area Christians gathered with death-penalty opponent Sister Helen Prejean in a vigil for a convicted killer who was executed last week as they prayed.
   Sister Prejean, author of 'Dead Man Walking', a book about her experiences with death row inmates in Louisiana, joined Texans at Houston's Sacred Heart Cathedral in the vigil for Timothy Lane Gribble.
   During the vigil Sister Prejean said, "Anybody who is not standing up against the execution and not working against it ... is involved in the killing that happened tonight."
   Gribble was the 211th death row inmate executed by Texas since 1982 and the 12th executed this year.
