Posted September 28, 2001 10:51 a.m. EDT

— A death penalty protest is set for Friday at the state capitol.

Protestors will be rallying about the scheduled execution of Robert Bacon Jr. He is set to die next Friday at Central Prison in Raleigh.

He was convicted for the 1987 stabbing death of his lover's husband in Onslow County. Bacon's lawyer still wants an international rights group to study the case.

The protest is set for 12 p.m. Friday at the Capitol Building.
