HUNTSVILLE, Texas – A serial killer was put to death Thursday night after the U.S. Supreme Court denied a stay of execution.

Tommy Lynn Sells was convicted of murdering a 13-year-old girl, but admitted to killing as many as 70 others.

According to reports, the defense argued for a stay until Texas revealed the source of its lethal injection drugs.

A lower court granted the stay, but was overturned on Thursday.

Sells’ lawyers argued that the state should have to reveal its source of lethal injection drugs, which is something Oklahoma¬†is also dealing with.
