AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) - Texas on Wednesday executed a man who led game wardens on a high-speed chase in 2007 before getting into a gun battle with them and fatally shooting one.

James Freeman, 35, was pronounced dead at 6:30 p.m. after receiving a lethal injection at the state's death chamber in Huntsville, a prisons official said.
