UPDATE 4-Missouri executes man convicted of killing ex-girlfriend's loverMissouri on Tuesday executed a man convicted of killing his ex-girlfriend’s lover more than 20 years ago, local media reported, after a court rejected his argument he faced cruel and unusual punishment because of a rare medical condition that would make lethal injection severely painful. Russell Bucklew, 51, was pronounced dead at 6:23 p.m. CDT at the state’s death chamber in Bonne Terre for the 1996 murder of Michael Sanders, shortly after he moved in with Bucklew’s ex-girlfriend Stephanie Ray, CBS affiliate KFVS12 reported. The Missouri Department of Corrections did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
