The habeas applicant claims that an expert's testimony was inadmissible under Texas Rule of Evidence 702 under the holding of Coble, and he contends that this testimony violated the heightened reliability requirement of the Eighth Amendment. The holding in Coble does not give rise to a claim that is cognizable on habeas corpus. Coble also forecloses the applicant's Eighth Amendment claim. Relief is denied. Court of Criminal Appeals, No. AP-76,533, 11-07-2012.
