Witness to an Execution

Host Bob Edwards talks to Jim Willett , warden at the Walls Unit in Huntsville, where the State of Texas carries out executions. Over the last decade, 199 prisoners have been put to death there by lethal injection. Willett is the narrator in a new radio documentary, "Witness to an Execution," which will be broadcast later today on "All Things Considered" from NPR News. The documentary features workers at the facility, who talk about what it's like to work there.
