BONNE TERRE, Mo. — A Missouri who killed a jeweler during a 1991 robbery was executed for the crime late Wednesday, marking the state’s third lethal injection in as many months.

Herbert Smulls, 56, was executed by a lethal injection of pentobarbital at the state prison in Bonne Terre. He was convicted of killing Stephen Honickman and badly injuring his wife, Florence, during a robbery at their jewelry shop in suburban St. Louis on July 27, 1991.
