Utah death row inmate featured in best-selling book dies in prison

A Utah death-row inmate who killed his brother’s wife and her toddler because of her resistance to polygamy has died of natural causes. Ron Lafferty died at a state prison in Draper. The murders were the basis for Jon Krakauer’s book ’Under the Banner of Heaven’ A Story of Violent Faith.’ Lafferty claimed he killed the two because of a revelation from God. He was expected to be executed next year.

"...featured in best-selling book" Is this real? Is a headline about a convicted murderer really being used to sell a book? Repulsive.
