July 31, 2020
The only Native American on federal death row is scheduled to be executed in late August, the U.S. government announced Wednesday.
Navajo man Lezmond Mitchell, 37, is set to die on August 26 by lethal injection at the Federal Correctional Complex in Terra Haute, Indiana, where he's being held.
If it proceeds it will be the first time in modern American history the government executed a Native American tribe member.
