McALESTER, Okla. (AP) -- A man convicted of beating a convenience store clerk to death with a baseball bat nearly 14 years ago has been put to death.

Darwin Demond Brown was pronounced dead at 6:11 p.m. Thursday after receiving a lethal injection at Oklahoma State Penitentiary.

The 32-year-old Brown and three other men were convicted of killing Richard Yost during the February 1995 robbery of a QuikTrip store in Tulsa. Yost's bound and battered body was discovered by a customer in the store's walk-in refrigerator in a pool of blood, milk and beer.
