A look at the numbers shows South Carolina has put six to death this year.
Virginia has executed five if you include Gregory Beaver.
But Virginia has four more likely to go, and South Carolina has none.
Overall, since the death penalty was reinstated in 1976, Texas has set the pace with 107.
Florida's number two with 37, and Virginia's a close third with 34, including Beaver.
By the end of the year, Florida may execute two more men -- and Virginia four more.
The American Civil Liberties Union worries the sped-up process puts stress on the U.S. Surpeme Court.
