I'm pretty sure that's why his date was set for 2019. If they can't find a vein now what's going to change. I guess they'd rather have him die in his cell instead of going through another Romell Broom debacle.

In rare move, Vietnam announces execution date of jilted lover behind family massacre
November 15, 2017

 It is extremely unusual for the country to give the public prior notice of an execution.

The murder of six family members that shocked the entire nation more than two years ago has resurfaced now that judges have announced that the killer will be executed this Friday.

It is extremely unusual for Vietnam to inform the public of an execution beforehand, but the announcement seems fit for a case that caught widespread media and public attention, with many calling it "a massacre". It also serves public interest in a country where there is still strong belief that capital punishment is the answer to serious crimes.

Nguyen Hai Duong, 26, was found guilty of a murder-robbery that took place in July 2015 in Binh Phuoc Province, three hours north of Saigon.

He will be put to death by poison injection, the province's People's Court said late Tuesday. He has been held in the province's prison and his condition is "stable", one judge said.

According to the indictment, Duong devised a plan to kill the family after they opposed his relationship with their daughter, leading them to break up.

Duong told his accomplice, Vu Van Tien, they were going to rob the family's villa.

On the morning in question, they arrived at the villa armed with knives and proceeded to stab Duong's estranged girlfriend, her parents, brother and two cousins to death. They left sparing the family's 18-month baby, taking cash and gadgets worth around $2,200.

Both Duong and Tien were arrested days later and sentenced to death in late 2015.

Duong accepted his punishment, but Tien, also 26, filed an appeal, which was rejected by the Supreme People's Court in July last year.

Tien has filed a petition to Vietnam's president.

Vietnam reduced the number of crimes subject to capital punishment from 45 to 22 between 1993 and 2012, and is set to bring the number down to 17 from the beginning of next year.

The country, which switched to lethal injection from firing squad in 2011, was one of 55 countries to still impose the death sentence in 2016, according to statistics from Amnesty International.

Official figures from Vietnam's Ministry of Public Security showed that 429 prisoners were executed between August 2013 and June 2016.

Earlier this year, the ministry said it was building five more execution facilities. Serious crimes, including drug-related offenses, murder and rape, have not seen a downtrend, it said.

Date set for execution of Sunday school teacher's killer Michael Pruitt scheduled to die on December 29
Nov 08, 2017

HARRISBURG, Pa. - A man convicted more than a decade ago of committing one of Reading's most brutal murders now has a date with the executioner.

The Pennsylvania Department of Corrections announced Wednesday that Secretary John Wetzel signed a notice of execution for Michael Pruitt.

He's scheduled to die by lethal injection on December 29.

Pruitt has been on death row since May 3, 2005, when he was sentenced for the murder of Greta Gougler in Reading three years earlier.

Gougler was a 69-year-old Sunday school teacher who was robbed, raped, and strangled inside her home on North Ninth Street on September 28, 2002.

A jury from Montgomery County was bused to Reading for the trial because of extensive pre-trial publicity given to the case in Berks.

Ohio Gov. Kasich sets new execution date for inmate

Ohio Gov. John Kasich has set a new execution date for condemned inmate Alva Campbell.

Campbell's execution has been rescheduled to June 5, 2019.

It was called off Wednesday after the executioners couldn't find a vein to insert the IV that delivers the lethal drugs.

Members of the Ohio execution team tried to find veins in the arms and right leg of death row prisoner Alva Campbell for about 25 minutes before stopping.

Chances are the POS will die in his cell first.

Execution of Ohio inmate Alva Campbell canceled due to vein issues

Associated Press , WKYC 11:52 AM. EST November 15, 2017
 
LUCASVILLE, Ohio -- He was supposed to die Wednesday morning, but Alva Campbell's life has been spared.

His execution was canceled after officials couldn't find a suitable vein, according to the Associated Press.

Campbell was slated to die by lethal injection at 10 a.m. Wednesday at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Lucasville.

Attorneys for Campbell, 69, had previously argued the execution should be halted due to his poor health conditions.

The Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections said they would provide Campbell a pillow during the execution because of breathing issues he could experience while laying flat.

Spokeswoman JoEllen Smith said Wednesday that Campbell spent the morning prior to the execution praying with the prisons' agency religious services administrator and watching TV.

Smith said a pair of checks Tuesday showed Campbell's veins were "palpable and accessible."

Campbell was sentenced to die for killing a teenager during a Columbus car jacking two decades ago.

Live Updates: Execution of Ohio inmate Alva Campbell
 
ASSOCIATED PRESS
   
PUBLISHED: 9:20 a.m.

A prisons spokeswoman says a condemned Ohio inmate with multiple health problems will be brought into the state death chamber in a wheelchair.

Attorneys for prisoner Alva Campbell say he uses a walker, suffers breathing problems and may have lung cancer. Campbell also uses a colostomy bag.

Spokeswoman JoEllen Smith said Wednesday that Campbell spent the morning praying with the prisons' agency religious services administrator and watching TV.

The 69-year-old Campbell lost his last appeal Tuesday when the US Supreme Court refused to stop the execution.

8:40 a.m.

The state says no problems were found with the veins of an inmate with multiple health problems set for execution.

Ohio prisons spokeswoman JoEllen Smith says Wednesday that two checks of condemned killer Alva Campbell a day earlier found the veins "palpable and accessible."

Smith says the 69-year-old Campbell slept most of the night, lying on his right side.

Smith says executioners still plan to provide Campbell a wedge-shaped pillow during the execution because of breathing problems he might suffer lying in his back.

Campbell has chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder from a longtime smoking habit.

Smith says Campbell's visits with his attorneys Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning had gone well.

With all these health issues the state of Ohio is doing this guy a favor by giving him the hot shot.
