Mug Shot
On May 19, 1998 in Lubbock, Texas, Yowell shot his father, strangled his mother with a cord and set fire to their house. The victim's grandmother died several days later from injuries sustained because she was disabled and unable to get out of the house.

Michael Yowell was executed on October 9, 2013, at 7:11 p.m. CDT by lethal injection in Texas.

Yowell's final words were, "I love you. To Gerald, you’re a zero. I love you Mandy. Tiffany, I love you, too. Punch the button."
