When Robert Gleason Jr. walks into Virginia's death chamber Wednesday night and is strapped into the rarely used electric chair, it will mark the end of a twisted quest to speed his own death.
A man who strangled his prison cellmate and made good on a vow to continue killing if he wasn't executed was put to death Wednesday in Virginia's electric chair.
"May God have mercy on his soul," Ms. Strickland told AP before the execution. "I've been praying and will continue to pray that his family can heal from this ordeal."
