No Executions Set For 2013 In South Dakota



Bookmark and Share

After a record year for capitol punishment in South Dakota in 2012, with two executions in a matter of weeks, it looks like the state will take a break this year. However, there is already an execution on the books for 2014.

Convicted murderer Rodney Berget is scheduled to die by lethal injection the week of January 12th.  The warden of the state prison will choose the exact day and time of Berget's execution. Berget was sentenced to die after being convicted of killing corrections officer Ronald Johnson while trying to escape from the state pen.

Attorney general Marty Jackley prosecuted the case and says the state must prepare for the execution.  Jackley says that the possibility for appeals from Berget still exists but he has not heard of such a request yet.

Jackley says the single drug protocol of pentobarbital would be used in the Berget execution.

It was last used in the executions of Donald Moeller and Berget's partner in crime Eric Robert.
