Gov. Ed Rendell signed an execution warrant Friday for a York County man who murdered his estranged common-law wife and her friend.
Milton Montalvo, 48, was convicted in 2000 of two counts of first-degree murder for fatally stabbing and beating Miriam Ascencio and her friend, Nelson Lugo, in 1998. Lugo was also known as Manuel Santana.
Montalvo's brother, Noel Matos Montalvo
, 46, also remains on death row for the murders. Rendell signed an execution warrant for Noel Montalvo in July 2009, but it so far hasn't been carried out.
