June 9 (UPI) -- Alabama executed Robert Bryant Melson by lethal injection at a correctional facility near Atmore, the state's department of corrections announced.
Melson, 46, was convicted in 1996 for three homicides during a 1994 robbery of a restaurant. He received life imprisonment for those crimes, but was sentenced to death for his participation in the 1999 murder of a prison inmate.
The Alabama Supreme Court declined to intervene in Melson's execution on Thursday evening and within an hour, he was given the three-drug execution protocol. He did not offer a final statement or request a final meal, and was pronounced dead at 10:27 p.m., the Alabama Department of Corrections announced.
Department Commissioner Jeff Dunn said in a statement that the execution was performed without complications.
It was the second execution in Alabama in two weeks.
