    U.S. to put 2 murderers to death as spate of federal executions continues

    U.S. to put murderer to death as spate of federal executions continues

    (Reuters) - The U.S. government plans to execute William LeCroy, a convicted rapist and murderer, on Tuesday, the sixth in a spate of federal executions after a long hiatus in capital punishment.

    The Department of Justice says it will kill LeCroy using lethal injections of pentobarbital, a barbiturate, at 6 p.m. EDT (2200 GMT) at its execution chamber in Terre Haute, Indiana.


    Under President Donald Trump, who took office in early 2017 and has long been an outspoken advocate for capital punishment, the federal government has executed more men than all of Trump's predecessors combined going back to 1963.


    Another execution is planned for Thursday, when Christopher Vialva, a convicted murderer, is set to become the first Black man to face the federal death penalty under Trump.


    Trump's administration ended an informal 17-year-hiatus in carrying out the death sentence after announcing last year it would use a new one-drug lethal-injection protocol, replacing the three-drug protocol used in the last federal execution in 2003.


    The new protocol revived long-running legal challenges to lethal injections. While a U.S. District Court judge, Tanya Chutkan, in Washington last month sided with condemned men who sued the government, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia said the judge had made "insufficient findings and conclusions" in blocking the execution of Keith Nelson over an issue related to federal safety law on prescription drugs.


    Chutkan has previously issued multiple orders halting planned executions while litigation continued. Those were soon overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court, whose conservative majority said that legal challenges to pentobarbital injections, which are also used by several state governments to execute prisoners, were unlikely to prevail.


    On Sunday, Chutkan declined to halt this week's executions, saying the government's violation of prescription laws did not itself amount to "irreparable harm." She also ruled that the question of whether a condemned man would still be conscious after injection of the caustic drug and suffer agony as his lungs filled with bloody fluid prior to death was "one upon which reasonable minds could differ."


    LeCroy was convicted and sentenced to death in Georgia in 2004 for the carjacking, rape and murder of Joann Tiesler, a 30-year-old nurse, after breaking into her home. He was caught two days later in Tiesler's vehicle at the U.S.-Canadian border with notes scribbled on the back of a torn map, according to prosecutors.


    "Please, please, please forgive me Joanne," read one note by LeCroy, who misspelled the victim's name. "You were an angel and I killed you. Now I have to live with that and I can never go home. I am a vagabond and doomed to hell."

    U.S. executes first Black man since resumption of federal death penalty

    (Reuters) - The U.S. government executed convicted murderer Christopher Vialva on Thursday, the first Black man to suffer the federal death penalty since the punishment was resumed this summer after a 17-year hiatus.


    Vialva was 19 years old when he and fellow members of a gang in Killeen, Texas, killed Todd and Stacie Bagley, white married Christian youth ministers from Iowa, on the Fort Hood army base in 1999.


    He was pronounced dead at 6:46 p.m. after U.S. Department of Justice officials injected him with pentobarbital, a barbiturate, at the execution chamber in Terre Haute, Indiana, according to reporter serving as a media witness.


    It was the sixth federal execution this year, and the second this week, after the practice was resumed by U.S. President Donald Trump's administration.

    Under Trump, the Justice Department has now executed twice as many men this year than all of Trump's predecessors combined going back to 1963. The last time the U.S. government executed six or more people in a single year was in 1942, according to the Death Penalty Information Center (DPIC) in Washington.


    The execution of Vialva, 40, comes as the nation grapples with racial disparities in the criminal justice system, with daily protests occurring in U.S. cities against police brutality against Black people.


    Of the 56 people on federal death row, 26, or 46%, are Black, and 22, or 39%, are white. Black people are only 13% of the U.S. population.


    DPIC published a report this month concluding that racial bias persists in the U.S. system of capital punishment. The report said the killers of white people were more likely to face the death penalty than the killers of Black people, and a study in North Carolina found that qualified Black jurors were struck from juries at more than twice the rate of qualified white jurors.


    At Vialva's trial in the U.S. District Court for Western Texas in 2000, a jury of 11 white people and one Black person found him and a Black accomplice, Brandon Bernard, guilty of carjacking and murder, and voted for them to receive the death penalty. Bernard's execution date has not been set.


    The American Civil Liberties Union has said Vialva was unfairly tried as an adult and circulated a video of him this month speaking from prison about racial disparities.


    "The death penalty has been used disproportionately against Black people for decades," Vialva says in the video. "People are unaware that many of us here were arrested before we were old enough to drink."


    According to court records, Vialva and his accomplices were looking for someone to rob when they found Todd Bagley using a payphone at a convenience store, and he agreed to give them a ride in his car. In the back seat, Vialva pulled out a gun and ordered Bagley and his wife to get into the car's trunk.


    After forcing Bagley to disclose his PIN, Vialva withdrew cash from Bagley's account at an ATM, though there was less than $100 on deposit. He used the cash to buy fast food and cigarettes, among other items.

    During the several hours they spent in the trunk, the Bagleys could be heard telling their kidnappers to embrace Christianity.


    Eventually, Vialva parked the car in an isolated part of Fort Hood, opened the trunk and shot both Bagleys in the head, killing Todd and rendering Stacie unconscious. Bernard then set the car on fire, and an autopsy showed that Stacie Bagley died from smoke inhalation.
