2004 developments:

bullet2004-MAR-15: UT: Governor bans death by firing squad: Governor Olene Walker signed a bill into law that was passed by the Utah legislature during February. It removes death by firing squad as an option that can be chosen by convicted murderers. Executions in the future will be by lethal injection. Four convicted murderers who have already selected the firing squad will have their wishes granted if they are eventually executed. Utah firing squads employ five riflemen, of whom one is firing a blank. That way, nobody knows who fired the lethal shot. 1
