TOPEKA, Kan. – A former Army cook convicted of numerous rapes and murders is set to be executed next month.  This is the U.S. military’s first execution in 50 years.  Former North Carolina soldier Ronald A. Gray was arrested in connection with four murders and eight rapes in the Fayetteville, N.C area between April 1986 and January 1987, while he was stationed at Fort Bragg. President Bush approved the execution in July, and Army Secretary Pete Geren set the execution date.  Only 10 members of the military have been executed since 1951 when the military’s modern-day legal system was enacted.
