Last night, Eric Randall Nance became the 998th person to be executed in the United States since 1976 when he was put to death in Arkansas. This morning, John R. Hicks became the 999th person to be executed when he was put to death in Ohio.

Tomorrow (Wednesday evening) at 9 p.m. East Coast time, Robin Lovitt is scheduled to be the 1,000th person executed when he is put to death in Virginia. There is, however, hope that Gov. Warner will commute Lovitt's sentence to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

I just read that Gov. Warner granted clemency to Lovitt and commuted his sentence.
