Gleason Executed
The man who asked to be executed, was. Former attorneys for Robert Gleason Jr. made a last minute appeal citing their opinion that Gleason was not competent to make the decision to waive his appeals. The 42-year old convicted murderer killed two inmates and vowed to continue killing unless he was sentenced to death. The U.S. Supreme Court has refused to stop the execution as two competency evaluations proved he was capable of making decisions. Virginia allows Death Row inmates to choose between lethal injection and the electric chair. Gleason chose electrocution and was pronounced dead around 9:08 last night.
