Missouri executes white supremacist serial killer
FILE - In this Monday, Oct. 19, 1998, file photo, Joseph Paul Franklin sits in Hamilton County Common Pleas Court where jury selection was set to begin in his murder trial in Cincinnati. Franklin has been convicted of five murders, but authorities suspect he's responsible for many more during a cross-country murder spree more than three decades ago, but it was the killing of a man outside a St. Louis-area synagogue in 1977 that landed Franklin on Missouri's death row. Franklin was put to death Wednesday, Nov. 20, 2013, the first execution in nearly three years in Missouri. (AP Photo/Al Behrman, File)
