Man executed for killing 19 yr old woman.

( KTRS ) The U.S. Supreme Court refused to block the scheduled execution of a Missouri inmate who killed a 19-year-old woman in 2001.

Fifty-five-year-old David Zink was put to death by injection Tuesday at a state prison south of St. Louis after the U.S. Supreme Court, the Missouri Supreme Court and Gov. Jay Nixon declined to intervene.

Zink was a paroled sex offender in 2001 when he abducted 19 yr old Amanda Morton after hitting her car on an Interstate 44 exit ramp a mile from her home. He told investigators he feared his drunken fender-bender could violate his parole and send him back to prison.

Jurors convicted Zink in 2004 and recommended a death sentence. He is the 5th inmate put to death in Missouri this year.
