William Emmett LeCroy, 50, is scheduled for execution on Tuesday. He would be the sixth federal inmate executed by lethal injection this year at the U.S. prison in Terre Haute, Indiana.

Christopher Vialva, the first African-American on federal death row to be executed this year, is scheduled to be given a lethal injection on Thursday, the Associated Press reported.
