West is executed
Tennessee executed its third inmate since November. Stephen West maintained that he didn't stab a mother and her 15-year-old daughter to death in 1986. The 56-year-old West died in the electric chair at Riverbend Maximum Security Institution in Nashville. For his final words, West said, "In the beginning, God created man." Then West began to cry adding, "And Jesus wept. That is all." Tennessee has put two inmates to death by lethal injection since August 2018. In Tennessee, condemned inmates whose crimes occurred before 1999 can opt for the electric chair.
