From the AP:
Texas has executed a man on death row for more than two decades for fatally stabbing a convenience store clerk during a robbery.
Fifty-one-year-old Michael Lynn Riley was pronounced dead at 6:18 p.m. Tuesday. He was the 15th convicted murderer executed this year in the nation's most active death penalty state.
Riley was condemned for the 1986 slaying of Wynona Harris, a 23-year-old clerk at a convenience store in his hometown of Quitman, about 75 miles east of Dallas.
