(Bonne Terre) Missouri has carried out its first execution of the year.
Carman Deck’s lethal injection began at 6:02 P-M, and he was pronounced dead at 6:10 at the prison in Bonne Terre.
He was put to death for the 1996 murders of an elderly eastern Missouri couple.
After pretending to be looking for directions, Deck and his sister robbed James and Zelma Long at the Long’s home in De Soto.
He then shot the couple in their heads.
Last night, he appeared to mouth the words “I’m sorry” before slipping into unconscious.
