RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

A Virginia man who strangled two other prisoners is scheduled to be executed Wednesday.

42-year-old Robert Gleason Jr. has shown no remorse for the murders. At the time of the crimes, he even vowed to keep killing unless he was put to death.

Gleason has not appealed his sentence or asked the governor for clemency, but Governor McDonnell said he reviewed the case anyway. McDonnell says he will not block the execution.
