Benjamin C. († 57) Executed by lethal injection in the United States.

A man who murdered his nine-month-old daughter Brianna has been hanged in the US despite possible psychological problems. Benjamin C.*, 57, was executed by lethal injection Thursday at McAlester Prison in Oklahoma State, officials said. The US Supreme Court on Wednesday refused to stay the execution.

C was sentenced to death in 2004. He killed his nine-month-old daughter who was crying because she wanted to play a James Bond game on his Nintendo console. The girl was brutally murdered. Her spine was broken when her father bent her legs backwards. A major artery was also torn by the force.
