At 12 minutes after nine last night, Reid was put to death by lethal injection.

Her family did not attend the execution, but said he must be punished.

Reid's attorneys tried to stop last night's execution by arguing that it's unconstitutional. They believe it constitutes cruel and unusual punishment because Reid could have felt pain before he died.
The I-V line was placed in Reid's right upper groin, because his veins in his arms apparently had deteriorated from years of drinking. It took medical technicians 12 minutes -- three times longer than usual- to place the I-V lines in Reid. His execution is the fifth in Virginia this year.
