Sioux Falls, SD(WDAY TV) -- A vigil will be held outside of the South Dakota state pen tomorrow night, while an inmate who killed a prison guard is executed.

The vigil is being put on by a group opposed to the death penalty. 50 year old Eric Robert is scheduled to die by lethal injection, for killing guard Ronald "RJ" Johnson during a botched prison escape in 2011.

Just last night Robert received his last meal. He requested moose track flavored ice cream. And is now fasting until he's put to death tomorrow night at 10.
