Florida Executions

—NPR's Cheryl Devall reports Florida plans to execute four death-row inmates this week. These will be the first since the state put executions on hold while reviewing its capital punishment program. Florida's only mode of execution is a 75-year-old electric chair. It's one of only five states that doesn't offer another option.
