TALLAHASSEE, Florida (Reuters) - A Florida man convicted of bludgeoning two women to death with a hammer and setting them on fire more than 26 years ago was executed on Thursday, a state prison official said.

Robert Lavern Henry, 55, was pronounced dead at 6:16 pm local time after receiving a lethal injection, said Misty Cash, a spokeswoman for the Florida Department of Corrections.
