Rodney Berget is one step closer to his execution
Wednesday officials announced he will be executed at the end of October or beginning of November. The warden will decide the specific time and date.
Berget is one of three inmates who murdered Correctional Officer Ron ‘R.J.’ Johnson in 2011. Eric Robert has already been executed for his role in the crime.
In addition to Berget, there are two other people on death row in South Dakota– Briley Piper and Charles Rhines.
