Cool C Given Date for Execution

The warrant is signed for him to die by lethal injection (on the same day Biggie passed):

Rapper Cool C's Execution Warrant Signed by PA Governor Ed Rendell

Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell signed the execution warrant yesterday for former Philadelphia rapper Christopher "Cool C" Roney. Roney, 36, is currently an inmate at Pennsylvania’s State Correctional Institution at Greene and is set to die by lethal injection on March 9.

In October 1996, Roney was found guilty of first-degree murder in the killing of Philadelphia police officer and nine-year veteran Lauretha Vaird during a botched January 1996 bank robbery that included rap partner Warren "Steady B" McGlone and a third man. Vaird was Philadelphia's first female officer ever killed in the line of duty.
