Breaking News ! The US Justice Department has scheduled two additional federal executions at the end of summer. Christopher Andre Vialva and William Emmett LeCroy are both scheduled to be executed in late September. The announcement comes weeks after the department fought off last-minute legal challenges and successfully resumed federal executions following a 17-year pause.

The youth ministers had stopped to use a payphone in Killeen, Texas, and agreed to give Vialva and two others a ride, authorities said. Vialva pulled out a gun, forced the couple into the boot and drove around for several hours, stopping at ATMs to withdraw cash and attempting to pawn the woman’s wedding ring, according to prosecutors.
