FLORENCE, Ariz. (KGUN9-TV) - Richard Stokley was executed this morning by lethal injection.

He was convicted of the killing of two 13 year old girls in Elfrida. The killings happened in 1991. 

Stokley's accomplice, Randy Brazeal, is free after serving a 20-year sentence. He pleaded guilty to second degree murder. After his plea, DNA tests results led law enforcement to say Brazeal was as responsible, or even more so than Stokley.
