A man who abducted and raped his best friend's fiancee was executed Friday in Alabama's electric chair, officials at Holman Prison said.

Steven Thompson, 34, who was absent without leave from the U.S. Navy in 1984 when he killed Robin Balarzs, was put to death shortly after 1 a.m. EDT, a prison spokeswoman said."It's over. They did it," said the spokeswoman who declined to answer any other questions.
