A Missouri inmate has been put to death.
It's the country's first lethal injection execution since a botched attempt in Arizona last month.
The Missouri Department of Corrections said Michael Worthington was pronounced dead early Wednesday morning.
He was convicted of raping and killing a woman during a burglary in 1995.
The Unites States Supreme Court, and Missouri's governor declined to block the execution despite three botched executions this year in other states.
