FLORENCE, Ariz. (AP) -- Arizona has executed its second death-row inmate in two weeks.
 
Robert Glen Jones Jr. was given a lethal dose of pentobarbital Wednesday morning at the state prison in Florence.
 
The 43-year-old Jones was convicted in the shooting deaths of six people during two armed robberies in Tucson weeks apart in 1996.
 
He and a co-defendant were accused of killing two people at a smoke shop and four others at the Firefighters Union Hall. They also were accused of stealing at least $1,300 from cash registers.
 
The two were arrested months later after the co-defendant's brother, who was the getaway driver, told authorities about the crimes.
 
Jones' execution came hours after the U.S. Supreme Court denied motions for a stay of execution and a rehearing of his case.
