Does Gov. Corbett have a death wish for York County killers?

That was the question that came to mind when the governor signed an execution warrant for Mark Spotz the day after Hubert Michael got a stay of execution.

Corbett signed Spotz’s death warrant on Nov. 9 although his office did not publicize that fact until Nov. 13.

I spent Nov. 14 trying to figure out if Corbett had a death wish for York County killers. The answer was not near as Hollywood.

It was, in fact, by the book.
