BOISE, Idaho (AP) â€” A 7th District Judge has scheduled death row inmate Paul Ezra Rhoades to be executed next month. He would be the first person put to death in Idaho since 1994 and the state's second execution since 1957.
Rhoades, who was convicted of killing three people in Idaho Falls and Blackfoot in 1988, is scheduled to be executed by lethal injection on Nov. 18. Seventh District Judge Jon Shindurling issued the death warrants Wednesday.
The inmate executed in 1994, Keith Wells, voluntarily gave up his appeals and asked to be put to death.
