The United States Supreme Court has approved the execution of a federal prison inmate, removing a hold placed hours earlier by a trial judge.

Naija News learnt that the justices voted to allow the execution of Daniel Lewis Lee to proceed at a federal prison in Indiana.

Daniel Lewis Lee, who was convicted of killing an Arkansas family in a plot to establish a whites-only nation, was executed by lethal injection early Tuesday at the Federal Correctional Institution in Terre Haute.

“I didn’t do it,” Lee said before he was executed. “I’ve made a lot of mistakes in my life, but I’m not a murderer. … You’re killing an innocent man.” He was pronounced dead at 8:07 a.m.
