Convicted killer William Castillo is scheduled to die by lethal injection in Carson City on Monday night.

Many people in the Truckee Meadows are unaware of the specifics of Castillo's case, but it's definitely not keeping them from expressing their opinions.

"if you're going to do something you have to be willing to face the consequences," says Rick Ehmcke from Reno. "If .the consequences are death, so be it."

"I think it gives the wrong message," says Robert Fletcher. "And it's mostly about revenge"

A ruling by a federal judge is requiring the state to publicize the execution protocol, which will likely only fuel a widely debated issue.
