LITTLE ROCK - For the first time for almost twelve years, a death sentence has been executed in the United States state of Arkansas. The 51-year-old Ledell Lee was killed by a poison injection for the murder of his neighbor in 1993.
Arkansas wanted to execute eight prisoners before the end of this month. It is in a hurry, because then the expiry date expires from one of the three means used for it.
