The next time a death row inmate is executed by lethal injection in Washington, witnesses will see more of the process. Washington’s secretary of corrections confirmed Wednesday that a closed-circuit camera will capture the moment the needle goes in.

An Idaho commission is declining to commute the death sentence for convicted murderer Paul Ezra Rhoades. Rhoades received life in prison for one murder, and the death penalty for brutally killing two other women in 1987. He's scheduled to die by lethal injection on Nov. 18 outside of Boise.
