NE Attorney General moves toward execution of man convicted of 2002 Norfolk bank robbery
Authorities in Nebraska say they plan to execute one of the men who took part in the 2002 robbery of a bank in Norfolk that killed 5 people.
Jose Sandoval was sentenced to death for murdering two employees and customer at a branch of US Bank in Norfolk during September of 2002.
Two other employees were also killed.
Today, the Director of Nebraska's Department of Corrections informed Sandoval the state will use a 4-drug cocktail to execute him.
State law requires that notice be given at least 60 days before the attorney general requests an execution warrant from the state Supreme Court.
The Nebraska Attorney General's office confirms that a date for Sandoval's execution has not yet been set but, today's notification means it could come any time after January 8th.
