BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho prison officials say convicted killer Richard Leavitt was calm and meeting with his attorneys and a few visitors on the day before his execution. KTVB reports prison officials declared Leavitt dead at 10:25 a.m. Sentenced in 1985, Idaho Department of Correction officials have been preparing for weeks for the execution, just the second in Idaho in 17 years. Leavitt was convicted in the 1984 stabbing of 31-year-old Danette Elg, of Blackfoot. Leavitt — along with some members of his family — insists he was innocent. But lawyers have lost and all but exhausted their attempts to appeal his conviction and sentence. IDOC Spokesman Jeff Ray says Leavitt has ordered baked chicken, French fries and milk for his last meal.
