Arizona executes killer for first time since 2007

Arizona executed on Tuesday Jeffrey Landrigan for a 1989 murder in the state's first execution since 2007.
Landrigan died by injection at a state prison in Florence at 10:26 p.m. after a stay issued by a federal judge was lifted by the US Supreme Court.
Arizona said Tuesday that it got its sodium thiopental from Britain, the first time a state has acknowledged obtaining the drug from outside the United States since a nationwide shortageof lethal injection drugs began slowing executions in the spring.
