Alabama set to carry out 1st execution in more than 2 years

A man convicted of the 1992 rape and beating death of a woman is scheduled to receive a lethal injection Thursday in what would be Alabama’s first execution in more than two years. Christopher Eugene Brooks, 43, is set to die at 6 p.m. CST (0000 GMT, Friday), authorities said. He was convicted of the capital murder of 23-year-old Jo Deann Campbell, a woman authorities say he first met when they worked at a camp in upstate New York.
