Up next for execution: The man who shot Larry Flynt and Vernon Jordan

The next U.S. execution is scheduled for 12:01 a.m. Wednesday in Bonne Terre, Mo. If the execution survives legal challenges filed in federal and state courts, it will be watched closely because of the high profile of the condemned inmate and state’s controversial method to kill him.
