A man who abducted and sexually assaulted a girl before burying her alive has been executed by lethal injection in the US.
Orlando Hall was convicted for his role in the horrific kidnapping, r3pe and murder of the 16-year-old sister of two Texas drug dealers he suspected had stolen money from him.
Lisa Rene was abducted in 1994 from her apartment by five men, including Hall, who had gone there to confront her brothers.
When they found her instead, the gang of marijuana traffickers took her at gunpoint to Arkansas where was r3ped, beaten and buried alive.
Hall was put to death at 11.47 pm on Thursday, local time, despite last-minute legal challenges to delay.
A victim impact statement on behalf of Lisa’s family was issued following the execution, 26 years after her tragic death.
