    WASHINGTON, D.C.: The US state of Florida executed a convicted murder Thursday who had been on death row 30 years for killing four people, including his five-year-old daughter, in 1985. Jerry Correll, 59, died by lethal injection at 7:36 pm (2336 GMT), according to McKinley Lewis, spokesman for the Florida Department of Corrections. The US Supreme Court rejected a request for a stay of execution. Correll was sentenced for killing his daughter, his ex-wife, and her mother and sister. The execution is the 25th in the United States this year according to the Death Penalty Information Center.
