(Reuters) - A man convicted of killing his wife and her 5-year-old son nearly 30 years ago is set to die by injection in Florida on Wednesday evening, the third person to face execution in 24 hours in separate cases across the South.

John R. Henry's death also would mark the third U.S. execution since a botched injection in Oklahoma in April renewed a national debate over capital punishment, according to Reuters.
