Ross execution hours away... (and now completed)

At 2 am on Friday morning, Connecticut is scheduled to execute serial killer Michael Ross, and his execution would be the first in that state in over four decades and the first in the Northeast in the modern death penalty era (unless you include Pennsylvania in the Northeast). The most recent decisions from the courts and other case developments are being terrifically covered at The Connecticut Law Blog, and Norm Pattis at Crime & Federalism has penned this ode entitled "Twas the Night Before Killing."

POST-EXECUTION UPDATE:  The New York Times reports in this article that Ross was declared dead at 2:25am, and Newsday collects these interesting quotes.  I see that Will Baude at Crescat Sententia has some posted some pre-mortem and post-mortem thoughts, and I will continue to look to The Connecticut Law Blog for continuing coverage of this story.
