US executes first federal inmate in 17 years

The US government carried out its first execution in 17 years Tuesday, putting to death convicted murderer Daniel Lee, 47, who murdered a couple and their 8-year-old daughter in 1996. Lee was executed at the prison in Terre Haute, Indiana, after the Supreme Court cleared the way with an overnight ruling. The execution was postponed on Monday over a legal challenge against a new injection protocol.
