Missouri Man Executed for Deaths of Girlfriend and Her Daughter

A Missouri man who killed his girlfriend and her 2-year-old daughter with a butcher knife was put to death Tuesday. 48-year-old, Richard Strong, was executed at the state prison in Bonne Terre for the deaths of Eva Washington and her daughter, Zandrea Thomas, more than 14 years ago. He was the fourth man to die by injection in Missouri this year and the 16th since November 2013. Only Texas has executed more inmates over that span.
