The death warrant is Corbett's 41st signed since he assumed office. The governor also signed warrants for two other men, according to a statement from his office.
Roney, 44, was convicted of first-degree murder and robbery in the early morning holdup of the PNC Bank at 4710 Rising Sun Ave. on Jan. 2, 1996. Vaird, a nine-year veteran of the force and a single mother of two sons, was the first officer on the scene. The 43-year-old officer was fatally shot once in the abdomen as she walked into the bank.
