Bobby Joe Long set to be executed today

Bobby Joe Long, one of Florida's most notorious serial killers, is hours away from death. After spending 34 years on death row, Long is scheduled to die by lethal injection using three drugs, one of which is etomidate. His attorneys have appealed sentencing in recent weeks, arguing the drugs' use would be "cruel and unusual punishment." The appeals were denied and the time is set: Long, now 65 years old, is scheduled to be executed at 6 p.m. today.
