A Tweet from Utah

Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff announced the execution of convicted murderer Ronnie Lee Gardner with three tweets from his iPhone. Mr. Shurtleff live-streamed his post-execution press conference.

Mr. Gardner had no last words before his execution by firing squad. We do not know if he had any last texts or tweets.
