Hall execution
A Chattanooga man convicted of killing his estranged girlfriend by setting her on fire in her car Thursday evening was put to death in Tennessee's electric chair. Lee Hall, 53, is only the second blind inmate to be executed in the country since the reinstatement of the nation's death penalty in 1976. Hall chose the electric chair over lethal injection an option allowed inmates in the state who were convicted of crimes before January 1999. He also became the first blind inmate in U.S. modern history to die by electrocution. Hall had his vision when he was placed on death row years ago, but his attorneys say he later became blind because his glaucoma was not properly treated.
