Alabama Inmate Executed for Role in 1993 Robbery and Shooting Death of Edward Lee Williams

Christopher Lee McWhorter was executed Thursday in Alabama for his role in the 1993 robbery and shooting death of Edward Lee Williams. His execution was the first in the state since 2019 and the ninth since then, despite his attorneys' efforts to have it stayed due to his mental competency. McWhorter's execution is the latest in a series of executions of inmates convicted of capital murder in Alabama, making it the state with the most executions since 2019.
