Firing Up Old Sparky

Virginia's death row "volunteer" Robert Gleason is scheduled for execution January 16, AP reports.  He has chosen the electric chair, an option still available there.

Gleason was serving a life term for murder at Wallens Ridge State Prison in May 2009 when he killed his cellmate, Harvey Watson Jr. After being transferred to the supermax Red Onion State Prison, Gleason strangled inmate Aaron Cooper in an outdoor recreation cage in July 2010.
