Robert's Execution Scheduled For Monday

Robert's Execution Scheduled For Monday
Eric Robert

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The South Dakota Department of Corrections has scheduled the execution for an inmate who killed a correctional officer during a botched prison escape for Monday.

The Department of Corrections says 50-year-old Eric Robert is scheduled to die by lethal injection at approximately 10 p.m. Monday at the state penitentiary in Sioux Falls.

It's the same prison where Robert killed Ronald "RJ" Johnson during a failed escape attempt in April 2011. Robert was serving an 80-year sentence on a kidnapping conviction when he and inmate Rodney Berget attempted to escape the prison.

Robert pleaded guilty to the slaying and was sentenced to death.

Robert did not appeal the sentence and told a judge that if left alive, he would kill again. Berget has appealed his death sentence.
