PHOENIX -- The Arizona Supreme Court has ordered that Robert Glen Jones Jr. be executed Oct. 23 under death sentences imposed for the fatal shootings of six people during two 1996 armed robberies in Tucson.

Jones and a co-defendant were convicted of fatally shooting two people at a Tucson smoke shop in May 1996 and four people at the Tucson Firefighters Association Union Hall the next month.

Arizona has had 33 executions since 1992.
