Last night at around midnight in Utah, Attorney General Mark Shurtleff announced via Twitter that he had given the go-ahead for convicted murderer (and three-namer) Ronnie Lee Gardner to be executed. Moments later, a target was pinned to Gardner's chest, and he was killed by a five-man firing squad. [NYT, BBC]
