Justin McLeod joins us with more on Reid's case.
Justin how did Reid's lawyers try to stop tonight's execution?
Jean they argued Virginia's method of execution is unconstitutional.
[LIVE= Justin /FULL BAM]
[SUPER=@Justin1;]


They believe it constitutes cruel and unusual punishment because Reid could have felt pain before he died.
The Supreme Court already dismissed that argument once before. The justices did the same with this afternoon's appeal.
That left Governor Mark Warner who refused to intervene on Reid's behalf.

So at 12 minutes after nine, Reid was put to death by lethal injection.
Back in 1997, Reid was convicted of the murder of 87 year old Annie Lester.

Lester's niece told News 7 earlier today Reid must be punished.
