The Justice Department has executed Dustin Lee Honken in Terre Haute, Ind., the third federal inmate put to death by the government this week.
Honken, 52, was sentenced to die in October 2005 after being convicted of numerous offenses, including five counts of murder — among them two small children — during the course of a continuing criminal enterprise.
A coroner pronounced him dead by lethal injection at 4:36 p.m. ET Friday.
At the time of his death, Honken had served more than 22 years in an Indiana prison.
