According to the Voice of America, the authorities of the state of Alabama have told the media that Kenneth Smith, convicted of murder, was executed by nitrogen gas yesterday in the prison of the state of Alabama. This is the first case of execution of sentence.
Officials said a mask was placed over the victim’s face that released nitrogen gas, which caused the victim to lose oxygen gas. Earlier in the state of Alabama, lethal injection was used to execute any criminal.
