WALLA WALLA, WASHINGTON (AP) - A lawyer for the child-killer Westley Allan Dodd argued in court that delaying his client's execution would be crueller than letting him die in the nation's first hanging since 1965.

Dodd, who waived all appeals, has said he chose hanging over lethal injection because he hanged his youngest victim's body in a cupboard after killing him. He has said he must die because 'I know I will kill again'. He was to die this morning.
