A Fort Worth man who admitted to killing two men over a phony drug deal was executed last night.

It was the nation's first execution this year.

Christopher Wilkins committed the murders in 2005 after the men duped him into paying $20 for a piece of gravel he thought was cocaine.

During his trial, Wilkins told the jury he didn't care if he was sentenced to death, saying, "It is no big deal."
