Pa. executions a rare occurrence

Many warrants have been signed, but only three men have been put to death since the ’70s.

Allegheny County man who killed his wife and teenage son nearly a decade ago, the killer of a Reading police officer, and Jerry Chambers, who is on death row for the slaying of a 3-year-old Philadelphia girl who was beaten and left to die, trapped between a bed and a radiator.

Don’t expect them to be executed anytime soon.
