Arizona on Wednesday executed its second death-row inmate in two weeks, a man convicted of killing six people in Tucson during two armed robberies 17 years ago.
Robert Glen Jones Jr. was given a lethal dose of pentobarbital shortly after 10 a.m. MST at the state prison in Florence.
It was Arizona's 36th execution since 1992 and the second this month. On Oct. 9, the state executed 71-year-old Edward Schad, who was convicted of killing a Bisbee man in 1978.
There are 120 people remaining on Arizona's death row, including two women.
To date there have been 32 executions in American death penalty states this year; a total of 1,352 post-Furman executions since 1977.
