Tennessee has executed its third inmate in the electric chair since November, killing a man who maintained that he didn’t fatally stab a mother and her 15-year-old daughter in 1986. State officials pronounced 56-year-old Stephen West dead at 7:27 p.m. Thursday at Riverbend Maximum Security Institution in Nashville. West said his then-17-year-old accomplice killed 51-year-old Wanda Romines and her daughter, Sheila Romines.
