Schwab was convicted of kidnapping, raping and murdering an eleven year old boy. He is long overdue for his final reckoning.
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Within hours of the U.S. Supreme Court lifting a stay of execution of a man convicted of killing an 11-year-old boy, Gov. Charlie Crist ordered that the sentence be carried out at 6 p.m. on July 1.
Mark Dean Schwab was given a reprieve while the justices considered the constitutionality of lethal injection procedures in several states.
The court a month ago upheld the use of lethal injection in a similar Kentucky case. On Monday, they lifted the stay on Schwab's execution that was ordered six months ago.
