Military death row (corrected)

The Associated Press has moved this inaccurate story about the men currently on the armed forces' death row at the U.S. Disciplinary Barracks, Ft. Leavenworth. The last military execution was in 1961.

Why is the AP story inaccurate? Because Andrew Witt of the U.S. Air Force is no longer on death row. His death sentence having been overturned, he is pending resentencing. So there are now five, not six, men on death row.
