This Day In Death Penalty History

According to the Chicago Sun-Times:

"On this date in 1966, murderer James D. French was executed by electric chair in Oklahoma. French had been serving a life sentence for murder and wanted to die, so he murdered his cellmate.  When asked if he had any last words before his execution, French replied: 'How about this for a headline for tomorrow's paper? French fries.'"
