U.S. Executes Daniel Lewis Lee, The 1st Federal Prisoner To Face Lethal Injection Since 2003

By  | 

A federal inmate was executed in the U.S. for the first time in 17 years on Tuesday morning, after a late night Supreme Court decision overturned the decision of lower courts and allowed it to proceed in a 5-4 vote. Daniel Lewis Lee received a lethal injection in Indiana, nearly 25 years after he was convicted of murdering three members of an Arkansas family. Lee told witnesses he did not do it.
