Texas Death Row Inmate Roland Ruiz

Mug Shot
Roland Ruiz was convicted of being the triggerman in the murder-for-hire of 29-year-old Theresa Rodriguez. Rodriguez was shot once in the head in the garage of her home as she stepped from her car. The victim's husband, Michael Rodriguez and brother-in-law, Mark Rodriguez, paid Ruiz $2,000 to kill her, apparently so Michael Rodriguez could collect on life insurance policies totaling $250,000.
