Convict Claims He Will Kill Again If Not Executed
He was a former hit man who now has only 50-days to live. 42-year old Robert Charles Gleason Junior is on death row and waiting for January 16th. The day Wise County Circuit Judge John C. Kilgore has set for the inmate’s execution. He was convicted of killing two other inmates and has chosen to ignore his last chances to appeal claiming that he will kill again if he is not executed. He got life in prison without parole for killing an Amherst County man in a 2008 shooting in an attempt to cover up a methamphetamine ring. While in jail he reportedly strangled 63-year old convicted killer Harvey Gray Watson Junior at the Wallens Ridge State Prison in Big Stone Gap in 2009. In 2010 he reportedly strangled convicted carjacker 26-year old Aaron Alexander Cooper while at the Red Onion State Prison near Pound. Gleason can choose from lethal injection or electrocution if his choice is made within 15-days of the execution, after that the state’s default option is lethal injection. Gleason has stated that he favors electrocution because he believes it will be quicker. (bg)
