|Execution date set for first Indian-origin death-row prisoner in US|
The execution date of the first death-row Indian-American prisoner convicted of killing a baby and her Indian grandmother has been set for next month.
Raghunandan Yandamuri, 32, in 2014 was given death penalty for kidnapping and killing a 61-year-old elderly Indian woman and her 10-month grand-daughter. It was seen as part of a botched kidnapping-for-ransom plot.
Yandamuri's execution date has been set for February 23 by local correctional authorities.
