A portrait commemorating Ronald "R.J." Johnson hangs in the training center of the South Dakota Penitentiary in Sioux Falls, S.D., on Monday, Oct. 15, 2012. Johnson, a prison guard, was killed by a prisoner during a botched escape attempt in April 2011. The training center, which bears Johnson's name, is where media are gathered in preparation for the execution of Johnson's killer, Eric Robert, 50. Robert is set to be the first execution in the state since 2007, and only the second in more than half a century. (AP Photo/Amber Hunt) less
