HARRISBURG -- Governor Tom Corbett has signed an execution warrant for a man convicted of murdering four people in four counties back in 1995.

Mark Spotz killed his brother in Clearfield County, and then took off across the state, killing a woman in Schuylkill County, another woman in York County, and another woman in Cumberland County, near Harrisburg.

Corbett's execution warrant covers the murder of the woman in York County. Spotz is already on Pennsylvania's death row.

No one has been executed in Pennsylvania since 1999.
