Waiting too long

I don’t understand why someone like John Allen Rubio, who beheaded three innocent little children in 2003 is held so long on death row.

He is waiting execution. Why wait so long? I’ve heard it costs $25,000 to $30,000 a year to house and take care of someone on death row.

Why pay that and wait so long? I wouldn’t think anyone would want to live in that building after what happened there to three little children.
