‘My murdered uncle would not have wanted Ronnie Lee Gardner executed’

As the Utah firing squad did its job, two women embraced – both nieces, one of a victim, the other of the killer.

In a darkened car park high on a hill overlooking the sparkling nightscape of Salt Lake City, two young women are clinging to each other and weeping. Their embrace conveys more than a thousand speeches.

Both women are nieces, and both have lost their much-loved uncles > more.
