Formerly a committed Missouri City police officer, ROBERT Alan Fratta is currently on death row and waiting to be put to death.
True crime enthusiasts are interested in learning more about Fratta and his crime because of the impending date of his execution.
Robert Alan Fratta, a murderer who has been found guilty, was born on February 22, 1957.
Fratta worked as a firefighter and police officer in Missouri City before getting into trouble.
According to CBS News, he was formerly known as a proud father who adored his three children, Bradley, Daniel, and Amber, who were 7, 6, and 4 years old at the time of their mother’s death.
Where is Robert Alan Fratta currently?
Farah Fratta, Fratta’s wife, was fatally murdered on November 9, 1994, in the midst of a contentious divorce and custody dispute.
Fratta and his children were at church when the shooting occurred, but according to the prosecution, he paid two guys from his gym to murder his wife while they were there.
After Farah’s passing made national headlines, Fratta was apprehended and found guilty of capital murder.
Detective Larry Davis reflected on his interview with Fratta on a 2010 episode of 48 Hours and shared what he stated convinced him of his guilt.
“I asked him a question that stills sticks out in my mind today – the way he answered it,” David said, via CBS News.
“I said, ‘Bob what should happen to somebody that kills somebody?’ He said, ‘They should go to jail forever.’ I said, ‘What should happen to somebody that has their wife killed?’ And he told me ‘it depended on the circumstances.’ I walked out and I said, ‘He killed her.'”
According to Click 2 Houston, Fratta was given a death sentence, but the conviction was eventually overturned owing to inadmissible evidence. In 2009, he went on trial once more and was found guilty.
Fratta has steadfastly defended his innocence over the years and keeps making attempts to have the sentence reversed. He filed an appeal with the US Supreme Court in 2019, but the judges affirmed his sentence.
“I’m completely innocent of my wife Farah’s death,” Fratta wrote in the appeal.
“The evidence was also legally insufficient. Yet here I set on Texas Death Row awaiting execution unless this Court intervenes.”
The Texas Department of Criminal Justice Correctional Institution in Huntsville continues to hold Fratta, who is now 65 years old.
