A warrant of execution has been issued for a man involved in the murder of senior Correctional Officer Ronald R.J. Johnson.

Second Circuit Court Judge Bradley Zell issued the warrant calling for the execution of Rodney Berget sometime between January 12 and January 18, 2014.  A specific time and date will be selected by the Warden of the State Penitentiary within forty-eight hours of the execution.

The warden is to request “the presence of the attorney general, the trial judge before whom the conviction was had or the judge’s successor in office, the state’s attorney and sheriff of the county where the crime was committed, representatives of the victims, at least one member of the news media, and a number of reputable adult citizens to be determined by the warden.”

Berget and Eric Robert killed Correctional Officer Ronald Johnson while trying to escape in April of 2011. Robert was executed in October of 2012.
