WAPT Jumps the Gun on the Holland Execution

As of 3:50 pm today, WAPT has posted a website story claiming that Gerald James Holland has been executed. Actually, the Mississippi Supreme Court's Order does not allow the State to kill Mr. Holland until 6 p.m. tonight.

I guess the website editor wanted to leave early? Or maybe they've become so addicted to exit polls that forecast elections that they think they can report future facts?
