Herbert Smulls was pronounced dead at 10:20 p.m. local time at a state prison in Bonne Terre after receiving a lethal dose of pentobarbital, a fast-acting barbiturate, Missouri Department of Corrections spokesman Mike O'Connell said. Smulls was the sixth person executed in the United States in 2014 and the third in Missouri since November. The U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday lifted a temporary stay of execution for Smulls, denying last-minute appeals.
