Kenneth Boyd

Kenneth Boyd was put to death by lethal injection in North Carolina for the 1988 murder of his wife and father-in-law.

The 57-year-old never denied his guilt, although Boyd did assert that his posting to Vietnam during the war contributed to his frame of mind in the run up to the murders.

Boyd’s death marked the 1,000th US execution since the penalty was reinstated in 1976.
