A look at other inmates on military death row
Maj. Nidal Hasan was sentenced to death Wednesday for the 2009 mass shooting at Fort Hood, Texas. He will now join five other inmates who are on military death row at Fort Leavenworth, Kan. None of the five are close to an execution date, and one of the inmates could have his sentence commuted to life in prison. The military courts system has not executed an active-duty soldier since 1961.
Here is a look at inmates currently on death row:
— Ronald A. Gray, convicted in April 1988 of several murders and rapes while stationed at Fort Bragg, N.C.
— Dwight J. Loving, convicted in April 1989 of killing two cab drivers while stationed at Fort Hood.
— Hasan K. Akbar, convicted in May 2005 of attacking fellow soldiers in Kuwait, killing two, during the invasion of Iraq.
— Andrew Witt, convicted in October 2005 of killing a fellow airman and his wife at their home at Robins Air Force Base in Georgia. An appeals court ordered his case reopened earlier this month.
— Timothy Hennis, convicted in April 2010 of killing a North Carolina mother and her two children a quarter-century earlier.
