The state of Alabama on Thursday executed a 44-year-old man convicted of raping and murdering a woman in 1992, a prison official said, the first execution in that state since 2013.

Christopher Brooks, was pronounced dead from lethal injection at 6:38 p.m. CST at the state's death chamber in Atmore, prison spokesman Bob Horton said.

Brooks' was the third US execution of the year, coming just one day after an execution in Texas.
