It doesn't look, however, as if he'll actually be executed. Though he's been given the death penalty, there doesn't seem to be any indication
that it will be carried out (judging by past history of the state, etc etc).

Minnesota, the US Attorney consulted with John Ashcroft, and the death penalty is being sought in the case.
It will remain to be seen if either sentence is actually carried out.
