Posted: Updated:

A Texas man is set for execution Wednesday evening for killing two truckers in a fit of road rage 15 years ago.

Douglas Feldman was convicted for gunning down 36 year old Robert Everett and 62 year old Nicholas Valesquez.

Feldman said Everett cut him off on a Dallas freeway so he pulled out a pistol and shot him.

Still angry 45 minutes later, Feldman spotted Valesquez, a gasoline tanker driver filling at a service station, and shot him.

While in prison, Feldman has been involved in 136 disciplinary cases.
