First black inmate put to death since Trump administration resumed executions


A man convicted of killing two people was executed on Thursday, marking the first black inmate put to death since the Trump administration's revival of federal executions this year.

Christopher Vialva, 40, died at a federal prison in Terre Haute, Indiana. His execution came more than 20 years after he was sentenced to death in the 1999 killing of Todd and Stacie Bagley, a white couple who were youth ministers. Vialva was 19 at the time of the crime.
