Terry Lyn Short, 47, is scheduled to die via lethal injection at 6 p.m., Tuesday, for the firebomb killing of a Japanese student 13 years ago. Short threw the device into the apartment of his ex-girlfriend, who lived below the student, who was asleep at the time. Short admitted, for the first time publicly, that he threw the firebomb at a clemency hearing last month, but claimed he did not intend to kill the student, whom he did not know. Nonetheless, the Pardon and Parole Board unanimously rejected his clemency bid. See story here.
