Daniel Lewis Lee Execution Completed

07 15 20 Supreme Court Execution

In continuing coverage, the first execution of a federal prisoner in the U.S. in 17 years is complete.

Daniel Lewis Lee was executed by lethal injection Tuesday morning in Indiana.

A witness says Lee admitted to mistakes, but claimed “I didn’t do it” until the very end.

And his final words were, “you’re killing an innocent man.”

Lee is a convicted murderer who killed a family of three and then put their bodies into a lake.

The execution came shortly after the Supreme Court ruled in a 5-4 vote for the execution to move forward.

Now the Department of Justice says four other men will be executed by January 2021.
