This is inspired by discussions around the game Prison Architect. A lot of players find themselves frustrated with certain prisoners and wanting to have them transferred to death row.
Has this ever happened in real life - has a prisoner has committed murder while incarcerated and been sentenced to death for it?
Ideally I'm looking for recent (20th/21st century) examples in the US, though will take any example where some attempt at a rule of law was followed. I'm not counting people being imprisoned and suddenly dying, for example.
