Appeal denied, where petitioner sought to avoid execution tonight

The AP reports here that the final appeals of Virginia inmate seeking to avoid executing tonight were denied. The inmate was convicted of murdering an 87 year-old Christiansburg woman.

Since my grandmother in Christiansburg lived to be 80-something, I think of her whenever I read of this particular case, which does not engender any sympathy at all.
