TV star Kim Kardashian was “crying all morning” after the news of Brandon Bernard’s execution.
Kim was part of the high-profile campaign calling for his execution to halt and has generally been a strong advocate for prison reform in the United States.
He was executed by lethal injection in a federal prison in Indiana for his role in the assassination of youth ministers Todd and Stacie Bagley in 1999, when he was about to turn 18 at the time of the crime.
According to Kim, while the 40-year-old man was part of the crime, “his role was minor compared to that of the other teenagers involved, two of whom are now under house arrest.”
