A Mississippi man convicted of the 1995 sexual assault and slaying of the wife of his ex-boss, has been executed.
Larry Matthew Puckett, 35, was pronounced dead at 6:18 p.m. Tuesday following a lethal injection at the state penitentiary, authorities said.
Rhonda Hatten Griffis, a 28-year-old mother of two, was found dead at home on Oct. 14, 1995. She was an only child and her parents were listed as witnesses for the execution. Puckett had previously worked as a landscaper for Griffis' husband.
Griffis' mother, Nancy Hatten, told The Associated Press she came upon Puckett, then 18, in the home after the killing. She said Puckett tried to blame the woman's husband, who arrived afterward and scuffled with the man. Puckett fled and was arrested two days later.
