MASS MURDERER FACES EXECUTION MONDAY

Barring a last-minute change of heart, a mass murderer who has refused to make any attempt to save his life will be put to death by injection Monday night in Arkansas' second execution in 26 years.

R. Gene Simmons, 49, was scheduled to die at 9 p.m. He was convicted in the slayings of 16 people. Among them were 14 family members: his wife, his seven children and their spouses and children, killed during the 1987 Christmas holidays.
