    WASHINGTON, D.C.: The United States of Oklahoma on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila) executed a man convicted of rape and murder, who was connected to the crime 18 years later after advances in DNA technology. Anthony Banks, 61, was declared dead by lethal injection at 6:07 p.m. (11:07 p.m. Manila time) in McAlester. Banks received a death sentence in 1999 for the murder of South Korean woman Sun “Kim” Travis, who was kidnapped from her Tulsa apartment parking lot on June 6, 1979.
