Fastest execution after conviction I ever heard of was in Saudi in 1987. Two Jordanians were smuggling dope into Saudi. When they crossed into Saudi they were chased by the Saudi Interior Ministry police. The bad guys had AK-47s and one of them killed a police captian.
The dope smuggling murderers were arrested in the am on Wednesday and were executed in Riyadh after noon prayer call on Friday of the same week.

The whole "cost" of the death penalty has become a self fulfilling prophecy. They use the claim to delay and appeal the sentence until court costs in fact do exceed the cost of sustaining them for life.
As for the risk of accidently sentancing innocents, it would take an extremely unlikely combination of events to happen.We might not be able always tell who it was, but we can prove who it wasnt. DNA testing is an amazing thing.
